Description: The second edition of Erberâ€²s popular Aging and Older Adulthood reflects the most up-to-date scientific research and theoretical foundations that contribute to our understanding of the aging process and older adulthood. Erber organizes the book around complementary â€²big point-of-viewâ€² theories that focus on successful aging and successful adaptation. (such as â€²selective optimization with compensation modelâ€²) as well as matching a personâ€²s competencies with demands of the environment (the â€²ecological modelâ€²). To ensure that students acquire a cohesive understanding of the theories, Erber closes each chapter with a discussion and application of these theoretical models. Integrated with examples of diversity and filled with applications in the real world, this engaging text offers the most updated insights and theoretical underpinnings relating to our understanding of the human aging process.
