The Middle Years, Development and Adjustment; A Study-Discussion Course.
Kleinsasser, L.D., Comp.; Harris, Dale B., Comp.
Based largely on research in adult development and aging, these readings and discussion questions pertain to such aspects of development and adjustment in middle life as the following: individual differences in aging; biological changes through the adult years; changes in the physical senses (vision, hearing, taste, smell, touch, and pain) throughout adulthood; factors affecting employment, productivity, and achievement; personality development in the middle and later years; adjustment processes and problems; characteristic developmental themes of the mature years (love, concern for others, wisdom); and preparation for retirement, old age, and death. Included are a self-evaluation form, 65 tables and figures, and extensive chapter references. (ly)
