About this title


Moving beyond simply describing the differences between custodial and noncustodial grandparents, this volume places helping efforts with grandparents in theoretical, empirical, and pragmatic contexts. Stressing the importance of theoretically grounded interventions and empirically-based studies for the design, implementation, and funding of programs, the chapters define an "action-oriented" approach toward changing the lives of grandparents and their grandchildren. Topics include: In what ways do support groups help; Caring for children with developmental disabilities; Predictors of psychological distress; Building parenting skills; and Strategies for solving everyday problems, among others.

About the Author:

Bert Hayslip, Jr., PhD, received his doctorate in Experimental Developmental Psychology from the University of Akron in 1975. After teaching at Hood College in Frederick, MD for three years, he joined the faculty at the University of North Texas, where he is now Regents Professor of Psychology. Dr. Hayslip is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association, the Gerontological Society of America, and The Association for Gerontology in Higher Education, and has held research grants from the National Institute on Aging, The Hilgenfeld Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Humanities. His published research deals with cognitive processes in aging, interventions to enhance cognitive functioning in later life, personality-ability interrelationships in aged persons, grandparents who raise their grandchildren, grief and bereavement, hospice care, death anxiety, and mental health and aging.

Julie Hicks Patrick, PhD, received her doctorate in Developmental Psychology/Applied Cognitive Aging from The University of Akron (Ohio). She has held appointments as Project Director for three federal grants related to family caregiving in Cleveland, Ohio, and Peoria, Illinois (Bradley University). In 1998, she joined the faculty at West Virginia University as an Assistant Professor in Life Span Psychology. Dr. Patrick's research includes questions in social cognition, family caregiving, and successful aging. She teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in the areas of aging and cognition.
