Narrative Gerontology: Theory, Research, and Practice
Gary M. Kenyon, Phillip G. Clark, Brian De Vries, Ph.D.
Springer Publishing Company, 2001 - Social Science - 358 pages
Narrative gerontology focuses on the possibilities of the "life as story" metaphor in the field of aging. Effectively integrating theory, research, and practice, this volume emphasizes the ways narrative approaches such as guided autobiography and life review can be incorporated into practice. The goal is to improve the quality of care and the quality of life for older adults, especially those with chronic illness and those near the end of their lives. Professionals within the fields of gerontology, social work, counseling, family therapy, nursing, medicine, and occupational therapy will all find valuable insights on how to incorporate narrative approaches into their work.
