As the baby boomers move into retirement and later stages of life, gerontology and geriatrics have begun to receive much more attention. Changing Aging, Changing Family Therapy explores the ways in which family therapists’ expertise in systems theory makes them uniquely qualified to take a leading role in helping families and individuals cope with the challenges and changed circumstances that aging brings. Clinicians will find detailed coverage and practical guidelines on a wealth of vital topics, including coping with the illness of a parent or partner, working past retirement age, outliving one’s savings, preserving physical and mental well-being over time, and more.
