Stones, M. J.; Kozma, A.
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v11 n4 p269-81 1980
Conclusions were that: (1) meanings of mental health constructs cluster differently depending on the analysis; (2) happiness may be considered the most apposite representative of the mental health constructs employed by gerontologists; and (3) contemporary models of happiness favor neither the expansionist nor contractionist positions as a means of attaining happiness.
