Women and Positive Aging: An International Perspective

presents the noted research in the fields of psychology, gerontology, and gender studies, reflecting the increasingly popular and pervasive positive aging issues of women in today’s society from different cohorts, backgrounds, and life situations.

Each section describes a bridge between the theoretical aspects and practical applications of the theory that is consistent with the scientist-practitioner training model in psychology, including case studies and associated intervention strategies with older women in each chapter. In addition to incorporating current research on aging women’s issues, each section provides the reader with background about the topic to give context and perspective.
