Overview

Filled with practical and effective strategies, skill-building techniques, and advice based on the most recent research on the psychology of aging, Dr. Hill demonstrates how people can help themselves age productively and positively.
A practical companion to Robert Hill’s Positive Aging: A Guide for Mental Health Professionals and Consumers, Seven Strategies for Positive Aging presents essential tactics that encourage the development of positive aging skills. In Positive Aging, Dr. Hill challenged traditional conceptions about aging and offered a new theoretical framework for understanding the nature of aging. He argued that “Positive Agers” can be found everywhere, and come from all walks of life. They find satisfaction in life regardless of their personal circumstances. By adopting affirmative lifestyle choices and positive spirituality, they are able to age well.
In his new book, Robert Hill explains how anyone can adopt and develop positive aging skills. Dr. Hill has drawn upon the theoretical perspective first presented in Positive Aging to develop practical exercises and techniques that are easily accessible to the reader interested in discovering how best to adapt to the aging process. The reader will discover meaning through lifespan learning, learn how to transform age-related decline, and find out how to employ the principles of continuity in order to feel good about oneself, even during challenging times. The reader will also learn how to apply “meaning-centered” techniques of belonging, altruism, gratitude, and forgiveness in his or her own life, in order to enhance emotional health. These techniques are organized into seven distinct chapters: Learning, Meaning, Wisdom, Belonging, Helping, Gratitude, and Forgiveness.
