Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

is unique in its blending of the theoretical and the practical. On the one hand, attention is given to discussions of perspectives on aging, definitions of creativity, theoretical frameworks for development, therapies for aging, and cognitive habits and cultural tendencies that interrupt creative aging. On the other hand, Carlsen introduces many illustrative stories and models and describes practical, concrete steps to creative aging. All material is carefully developed and interwoven and smoothly brides the gaps between theory and practice.

Synopsis:

"Don't let therapists and counselors keep this unique book to themselves! Every man and woman who feels 'the first cool winds of evening' can take heart from this visionary yet down-to-earth exploration of creative potential in the later years of life. This is a book that can change lives." --Robert Kastenbaum, Ph.D. Editor-in-Chief,
