"Spirituality and Aging incorporates material from two decades of interviews, observations, study, and reflection to illustrate ways of thinking about and discussing spirituality - what it is, why it is important, and how it influences the experience of aging. This book provides a nuanced view of spirituality and the richness it brings to the lives of older people. Separating spirituality from religion - something few books on this topic do - Spirituality and Aging offers a plan for incorporating spirituality into gerontological scholarship, research, education, and practice."--BOOK JACKET."
