  • Aging and Developmentby Peter G. Coleman; Ann O'Hanlon

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 49.95

    The psychology of aging usually focuses upon cognitive changes, with a particular focus on dementia and other forms of cognitive decline. But getting older is about more than simply changes to the brain and related health issues. Changes to our social and emotional lives are also hugely significant as we adapt across our lifespan. The second edition... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 225.00

  • Sleep and Ageingby Kevin Morgan

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 110.00

    Sleeping patterns change with age, whether we are growing up, or growing old. While most people are prepared for the rapidly altering sleep patterns of growing children, the evidence suggests that many are unprepared for additional sleep changes in later life, either in themselves or in others. In this book, originally published in 1987, two research... more...

  • Learning and Cognition in Later Lifeby Frank Glendenning; Ian Stuart-Hamilton

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 110.00

    Originally published in 1995, within the previous decade there had been significant developments in our understanding of the learning and motivation, together with the conceptual and cognitive development, of older adults. This understanding had been enhanced by findings from longitudinal studies which were now becoming available. These findings demonstrated... more...

  • The Psychology of Grandparenthoodby Peter K. Smith

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 120.00

    The majority of people will now spend about one-third of their lives as grandparents, yet developmental psychologists have largely ignored the nature of the grandparental role, and the influence which grandparents can have on grandchildren. Originally published in 1991, this book redresses the balance and uses life-span evolutionary and psychodynamic... more...

  • Bouncing Backby Richard Wanlass

    Oxford University Press 2017; US$ 16.99

    The book presents clear instructions on coping with changes in functioning associated with injury, aging, illness, and pain. Chapters teach how to restore mood and self-esteem, manage stress and frustration, maintain strong social ties, cope with chronic pain, function efficiently when memory ability declines, and master self-motivation and time management. more...

  • Watermelon Magicby Wally Amos; Stu Glauberman; Jack Canfield

    Atria Books/Beyond Words 2011; US$ 3.99

    Watermelon Magic is talk from the soul using watermelons as a metaphor for life. Watermelons symbolize the slurpy happiness of life for Wally Amos (formerly known as “Famous Amos”). From his life experiences, Wally sees many parallels between humans and watermelons. Just as the vine connects watermelons and the umbilical cord connects mother and... more...

  • The Aging Intellectby Douglas H. Powell

    Taylor and Francis 2011; US$ 54.95

    Habits such as regular exercise are well known to be linked to better health in older adults. Far less is understood about behaviors that contribute to the optimally aging mind. This may be a reason why only about 25% of elders meet the standards for optimal cognitive aging. The Aging Intellect describes more than a dozen specific characteristics... more...

  • Dealing with Memory Changes As You Grow Olderby Kathleen Gose; Gloria Levi

    Random House Publishing Group 2011; US$ 13.98

    Separate the facts from the fears about memory loss.   For many older people and their families, the fear of progressive memory loss is the chief anxiety about aging. To them, lapses that younger people would laugh off as distraction may seem the early symptoms of an inevitable decline into senility. The good news is that most of these fears are... more...
