In breve

The theme of growing older is an increasingly important topic in research, theory improvement, policy development, and clinical practice. Professionals, caregivers, and families alike are concerned with ageing successfully. The book comprehensively reviews the major theoretical frameworks, with a focus on the psychosociological theories, emphasizing the need of an integrated, holistic conceptual framework. An updated state-of-the-art of programs and initiatives is offered, underlining the most promising lines of research as well as the questions still open and challenging, and the gaps in research.
