Abstract:

This volume provides solutions to those coping with the needs of an aging population. Among the topics addressed are assessment of the aging, taking into account biological age, psychological age, and socio-cultural and spiritual age. The author also considers the importance of the family system, family roles and development, functional-age individual and family intervention, and group and community interventions. She proposes to achieve a "successful aging" philosophy by selecting direct practice interventions, including preventive and psychoeducational strategies as well as family-centered model.

"In recent years, theoreticians, researchers, and practitioners have become increasingly interested in older adults and the aging process. This volume draws on related disciplines to better understand the biological, psychological, and social aspects of aging. Social Work with the Aged and Their Families covers areas of central interest to those coping with the needs of an aging population. Among the topics addressed are assessment of the aging, taking into account biological age, psychological age, and sociocultural and spiritual age. Author Roberta Greene also considers the importance of the family system, family roles and development, functional-age individual and family interventions."--BOOK JACKET.
