About this item

"[This] is the textbook and resource that geropsychologists have needed for years. We finally have a leading-edge course book that offers scholarly knowledge about the most timely and essential topics of the biological, psychological and social aspects of the aging process. This collection of chapters is truly interdisciplinary, and covers both the scientific base and clinical application of each subspecialty. The editors have accomplished this undertaking by bringing together an assemblage of contributing authors who are the renowned rising stars in geropsychology. They are the new experts with the most current scientific knowledge. All the chapter authors cover their complex topics with clarity, depth, and reflection, along with providing up-to-date references and discussion questions for classes. This textbook will serve as a stand-alone resource for graduate and advanced undergraduate geropsychology courses. We can now archive our outdated textbooks and replace them with this state-of-the-art resource!"--Margaret Norris, Phd

"The book goes well beyond the information in undergraduate texts and provides stimulating and useful coverage of key topics in biopsychosocial aging. Psychology is not prepared for the future growth of our older adult population, and I suggest Psychology of Aging: A Biopsychosocial Perspective as required reading for students"--William E. Haley, PhD; Professor; School of Aging Studies; University of South Florida, Tampa, FL

"This book distinguishes itself from previous publications on the topic with a thorough review of the history of the profession of geropsychology and its timely inclusion of chapters on brain imaging techniques and the aging brain, cultural differences in aging ethnic and sexual minorities, cognitive interventions, and more. This book is a must read for undergraduate and graduate students studying aging, and one I will definitely recommend to students new to the area."--Sherry A. Beaudreau, Ph.D., ABPP, VA Palo Alto Health Care System and Stanford University School of Medicine

"Brian Yochim and Erin Woodhead have created an invaluable tool for learning about and teaching geropsychology...This book will serve as a seminal text in training psychologists, social workers, and many other disciplines in the psychology of aging." --Erin E. Emery-Tiburcio, Ph.D., ABPP, Rush University, Chicago, IL
