"Despite the undeniable physical, psychological, and social effects of aging, writes Robert C. Atchley, most older persons cope quite well and find considerable satisfaction in their later years. Part of the explanation for this finding is based on what Atchley calls continuity - the ability of older persons to maintain a strong sense of purpose and self in the face of the changes associated with aging. Continuity can help individuals evolve psychologically and socially in the presence of life events such as retirement, widowhood, and physical disability." "Drawing on data from a twenty-year longitudinal study that began with more than 1,200 individuals, Continuity and Adaptation in Aging explains one of the primary underlying forces that promotes effective adaptation to the aging process. This book will be of interest to researchers and students in gerontology and adult development."--Jacket

Spirituality and aging by Robert C Atchley( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A spiritual life, one focused on personal growth and deep human experience, is a major focus and motivator for people over the age of forty. Yet there is a marked lack of rigorous academic study of spirituality's importance in the lives of aging people. Noted gerontologist Robert C. Atchley remedies this problem by developing complex concepts and language about spirituality." "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."--Jacket
