What Do Social Theories of Aging Offer Counselors?
Atchley, Robert C.
Counseling Psychologist, v20 n2 p336-40 Apr 1992
Responds to previous article by Fry (1992) on social theories of aging. Expresses wish that Fry had not included so many marginally useful or discredited theories and had instead concentrated on more careful treatment of remaining theories, particularly disengagement theory, continuity theory, and socioenvironmental theory. Also wonders about omission of social breakdown theory. (NB)
