Résumé :

The Handbook of the Psychology of Aging, 7e is 100% revised from the 6th edition, with one third of the previous topics covered by new authors and two thirds of entirely new topics. Providing a comprehensive synthesis and review of the latest research findings in the psychology of aging, it is intended as a summary for researchers, and is also suitable as a high level textbook for graduate and upper level undergraduate courses. The 24 chapters are organized into four sections: Part I Concepts, Theory and Methods in the Psychology of Aging; Part II Neuroscience, Cognition and Aging; Part III Social and Health Factors that Impact Aging; and Part IV Complex Behavioral Processes and Psychopathology of Aging.

The 7th edition expands coverage of neuropsychology including how structural changes to the brain have cognitive consequences, the neuroplasticity of cognitive function, neuropsychological assessment of dementia, and executive functioning in cognitive aging. Additional new coverage focuses on other factors affecting psychological aspects of aging including, stress, sense of control, and socioeconomic class, and with new chapters on relationships and communication, and aging in the work context.

Contributors to this volume represent the global research community, with contributors from the US, Sweden, Spain, Germany, Australia, Canada, and Switzerland. The Handbook will be of use to researchers and professionals working with an aging community, as well as being suitable as a textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on the psychology of aging.
