Intergenerational communication across the life span by Angie Williams( )

23 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 2,301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Individuals of all ages interact with one another, and their interactions have significance throughout their lives. This distinctive volume acknowledges the importance of these interactions and provides a life-span developmental view of communication and aging, attempting to capture the many similarities and changes that occur in people's lives as they age. The authors move the study of intergenerational contact closer to the actual participants, examining what happens within intergenerational interactions and how people evaluate their intergenerational experiences. The volume concentrates on the micro-context of the intergenerational interaction and the cognitions, language, and relationship behaviors related to intergenerational communication across the life span. The volume employs the perspective that the understanding of human behavior across the life span is enhanced by studying communicative behavior in intergenerational interaction. The authors integrate research from multiple disciplines concerned with intergenerational communication, which is framed by several unique theoretical perspectives drawn from the communication discipline. As a resource for the study of intergenerational communication across the life span, this monograph offers important insights to scholars, students, and all who are involved in intergenerational communication
Handbook of communication and aging research by Jon F Nussbaum( )

31 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 2,274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. Editors Jon F. 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. The contributors to this Handbook are active researchers using particular perspectives on communication and aging. Many of the chapters work to deny earlier images of aging, providing a picture of aging as a process of development involving positive choices and providing new opportunities. 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. This second edition will be invaluable to scholars and researchers in gerontology, developmental psychology, and communication and to practitioners who study or work with older adults
Communication and aging by Jon F Nussbaum( )

25 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in English and held by 1,487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text employs a communication perspective to examine the aging process and the ability of individuals to adapt successfully to aging. It continues the groundbreaking work of the first edition, emphasizing a life-span approach toward understanding the social interaction that occurs during later life. The edition provides a comprehensive update on the existing and emerging research within communication and aging studies and considers such topics as notions of successful aging, positive and negative stereotypes toward older adults, and health communication issues. It raises awareness of the barriers facing elderly people in conversation and the importance such conversations have in elderly people's lives. The impact of nonrelational processes, such as hearing loss, are considered as they impact relationships with others and affect the ability to age successfully. The book is organized into 14 chapters. Each chapter is written so that the reader is presented with an exhaustive review of the pertinent and recent literature from the social sciences. As in the first edition, when the literature is empirically based, the communicative ramifications are then discussed. Readers of this volume will gain greater understanding of the importance of their communicative relationships and how significant they remain across the life span. Developed for students in communication, psychology, nursing, social gerontology, sociology, and related areas, Communication and Aging provides important insights on communication to all who are affected by the aging process

Life-span communication by Loretta L Pecchioni( )

26 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This innovative text emphasizes how communicative processes develop, are maintained, and change throughout the life span. Authors Loretta L. Pecchioni, Kevin B. Wright, and Jon F. Nussbaum examine specific communication processes from infancy through childhood and adolescence into middle age and later life." "This text has been developed for use in life-span communication courses and in interpersonal communication courses with a lifespan focus, at an advanced or graduate level.

Discourse and lifespan identity by Nikolas Coupland( Book )

11 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 376 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 )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 325 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

9 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Life-Span Communication: Normative Processes is a unique collection of articles within the field of human communication. Twenty internationally recognized scholars have written original articles which stress communication as a developmental phenomenon. Each article is placed within a specific development phase.

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

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 126 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( )

6 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 64 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"--
