Synthesizing the vast amount of research on communication and aging published over the past three decades, the Handbook of Communication and Aging Research captures the ever-changing and expanding domain of the study of aging.

Nussbaum and Justine Coupland have updated and added to the offerings of the first edition, with contributions that reflect the variety of disciplines and range of methodologies involved in the exploration of what it means to grow old.

Chapters also stress the heterogeneity of the group of peple who are variously categorized as older, aged, elderly, or over 56. The literature is reviewed analytically in each chapter, not only revealing current theoretical and methodological approaches to communication and aging reseatch. but also setting the future agenda. This volume stands alone in its thorough scholarly examination of current research and theory on the diverse nature of communication and aging.

Discourse and lifespan identity by Nikolas Coupland( Book )

11 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How are social development, maturation, aging, stability, and change reflected in human interaction and in social contexts? How, where, and when does age surface as a theme in everyday talk? What social rituals endorse our accepted views of "coming of age," "turning forty," "entering retirement," or generally "acting our age"? What can language achieve for us? A multidisciplinary cast of contributors answers such questions through empirical studies and theoretical interpretations. Provocative and accessibly written, this volume explores discursive practices in which age-related identities are formulated, challenged, or consolidated. From mother-daughter relationships to marital communication, Discourse and Lifespan Identity takes a dynamic view of lifespan development in today's culture. Discourse and Lifespan Identity offers valuable information to students and professionals of interpersonal communication, speech communication, social psychology, developmental psychology, aging, and sociology"--Publisher description
The Routledge handbook of health communication by Teresa L Thompson( Book )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Routledge Handbook of Health Communication brings together the current body of scholarly work in health communication. With its expansive scope, it offers an introduction for those new to this area, summarizes work for those already learned in the area, and suggests avenues for future research on the relationships between communicative processes and health/health care delivery. This second edition of the Handbook has been organized to reflect the goals of health communication: understanding to make informed decisions and to promote formal and informal systems of care linked to health and well-being. It emphasizes work in such areas as barriers to disclosure in family conversations and medical interactions, access to popular media and advertising, and individual searches online for information and support to guide decisions and behaviors with health consequences. This edition also adds an overview of methods used in health communication and the unique challenges facing health communication researchers applying traditional methods to efforts to gain reliable and valid evidence about the role of communication for health. It introduces the promise of translational research being conducted by health communication researchers from multiple disciplines to form transdisciplinary theories and teams to increase the well-being of not only humans but the systems of care within their nations. Arguably the most comprehensive scholarly resource available for study in this area, the Routledge Handbook of Health Communication serves an invaluable role and reference for students, researchers, and scholars doing work in health communication.--Publisher website

The handbook of lifespan communication by Jon F Nussbaum( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fundamental assumptions of lifespan communication are that the very nature of human communication is developmental, and, to truly understand communication, change across time must be incorporated into existing theory and research. Beginning with chapters on lifespan communication theory and methodologies, chapters are then organized into the various phases of life: early childhood, adolescence, emerging adulthood, middle adulthood, and older adulthood. Top scholars across several disciplines have contributed to chapters within their domains of expertise, highlighting significant horizons that will guide researchers for years to come
Communication at the end of life( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While health care at the end of life is changing, the language for talking about treatment options and patient preferences around the end of life is taking longer to change. This book carefully details the way language shapes decisions around end-of-life care. Using ethnographic research from two sites that offer emergency care and end-of-life care--a hospice and an emergency department--the author illustrates common themes around language use that serve as microcosms of the larger healthcare system in the United States. The sites have different purposes for providing care, yet the themes from both serve as guidance and reflection for other areas of caregiving. The language used to talk about death holds consequences and opportunities for understanding and making decisions about care practices. This book uses personal stories and perspectives from patients, family members, and medical workers to paint a picture of some of the issues and tensions individuals and caregivers face. With an aging population--one that represents a major public health challenge in the twenty-first century--Carey Candrian argues that examining the care we provide for individuals, especially aging individuals, is fundamental to creating a developed, ethical, and engaged society"--Publisher's description
Comunicación e intimidad : las relaciones íntimas a lo largo de la vida by Jon F Nussbaum( )

7 editions published in 2011 in Spanish and Catalan and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Communication across the life span( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As we grow up and grow old, embrace new experiences, try new roles, and adopt new technologies, our senses of time, space, connection, and identity are fundamentally explored through communication. Why, how, with whom, and to what end humans communicate reflect and shape our ever-changing life span position. And while the «life span» can be conceived as a continuum, it is also one hinged by critical junctures and bound by cultural differences that can be better understood through communication. The chapters in this collection, chosen from among the invited plenary speakers, top research papers, and ideas discussed in San Juan, explore the multiple ways communication affects, reflects, and directs our life transition. Capturing the richness and diversity of scholarship presented at the conference, chapters explore communication technologies that define a generation; communication and successful aging; stereotyping and family communication; sexual communication and physiological measurement; life span communication and the digital divide; and home-based care contexts across the world, among others
Language, communication, and intergroup relations : a celebration of the scholarship of Howard Giles by Jake Harwood( )

5 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Language, Communication, and Intergroup Relations presents the current state of knowledge at the intersection of language, communication, and intergroup relations, drawing on interdisciplinary work from the fields of communication, social psychology, and sociolinguistics. Building from that existing work, it presents a series of provocative and innovative new directions in this area. The work is organized around a series of five themes: - Language and Culture - Intergroup Communication - Intergenerational Relations - Interpersonal Accommodation - Institutional Accommodation Within each theme, prominent scholars present reviews of the literature, which are followed by responses, reactions, and extensions from a multidisciplinary group of researchers. These responses often move beyond typical academic prose and engage with the material in novel ways, including graphical theoretical models, short personal reflections, and creative prose. It is essential reading for students and academics in the interdisciplinary fields of communication, language and social psychology"--
