A video instructional series on aging for college and high school classrooms and adult learners; 13 one-hour video programs and coordinated books
Learn about the impact of aging on both society and individuals as 75 diverse elders relate their experiences. The four ways that age is measured — chronologically, biologically, psychologically, and socially — are the basis for discussing the quality of life in later years. The series examines common misconceptions about aging and provides a springboard for analyzing new roles for elders, intergenerational alliances, resource allocation, and artificial attempts to prolong life. These programs are particularly useful for students of psychology, gerontology, sociology, family studies, human development, and health sciences.
