1/14 THE SLIDES ARE A GUIDE!!!! Her explanations are what are mostly on the exam Chapter 5 Basic Concepts Gerontology- Study go aging from maturity thru old age broken into sections ambiguous Gero- old men Aspects: -social -psych -bio Aging is not related to time. We don’t have a definitive theory for aging applied by many researchers Psych of Aging - examines age- related changes, both normal and pathological “normal”- free from disease, natural aging “pathological”-Alzheimers, Parkinson’s, heart disease, etc Important to distinguish between them because when we want to not end up diagnosing a problem because of “getting old”. Studies have changed in the past 30 years -Aging occurs across the lifespan- WE START AGING THE DAY WE ARE BORN -Aging reveals dramatic individual differences-WE DONT ALLAGE AT THE SAME RATE -Primary aging-The “normal” aging (don’t know the when) -secondary aging- “impaired aging” caused by disease (physical or mental),enviornmental influence -Aging consists of lifelong adaptions and transitions -previous research:disengagement theory-1961-let go, elders go thru serious of losses in rolls and relationships. -Current Research:Optimal Aging- 80’s- we are suppose to make the most of our adaptations and transitions. NOT LOSSES. Maintaining a high quality of life.
