Midlife myths: issues, findings, and practice implications
This volume separates myth from reality by providing factual knowledge about some of the most pertinent, and perplexing, midlife issues. The editors identify prominent areas of midlife associated with negative images, including physical status, cognitive structures and intelligence, mental health and personal development, social context of marriage and family, and personal development and social responsibility. Contributors examine widely held beliefs in these areas in the context of research findings that dispel or challenge them with alternative perspectives. The discussions thus encourage a more balanced view of midlife that recognizes the potential for continued growth and satisfaction in midlife and contribute to a more realistic preparation of professionals in the human services.
