From the Publisher"This beautifully constructed book identifies the key issues we must address in our work to help aging individuals and their families. Filled with compassion and insight, this wonderful volume examines aging from a family-systems perspective, discussing the shifting life challenges that the elderly encounter and the ways in which those challenges affect older men, women, and their loved ones. Changing Aging, Changing Family Therapy is one of those special books that practitioners will want to have at their fingertips to guide them as they help older clients and their families to manage and enjoy the latter stages of their lives."
—Mark Kiselica, PhD, dean of education and professor of counselor education at the College of New Jersey
"This book is what baby boomers have been waiting for. It is a timely assessment of the realities inherent in aging, and it is skillful in the way it equips therapists to work with clients both directly and indirectly affected by aging. Changing Aging, Changing Family Therapy is a must for practitioners, students, and professors."
— Rita Chi-Ying Chung, PhD, author of Social Justice Counseling: The Next Steps Beyond Multiculturalism
"What an outstanding group of authors! From finance to health and from work to intimacy (including same-sex couples), this book covers the many critical aspects of what happens as we age and how this affects our relationships. Changing Aging, Changing Family Therapy is more than a book for professionals in the fields of gerontology or marriage and family therapy. Anyone who is in a relationship and is aging will gain critically important knowledge from this book."
—Mark Pope, EdD, professor of counseling and family therapy at the University of Missouri–Saint Louis and past president of the American Counseling Association
"This book does an exceptional job presenting what no one has done: acclimatizing family therapy to the baby boomer population. The in-depth interviews with four of the family therapy masters are a rich addition to the book. This is a must read for family therapists our changing times."
—Fred Bemak, EdD, professor and director of the Diversity Research and Action Center, George Mason University
