Full Description

Aging Education provides educators in aging studies with a unique text that responds to the paucity of instructional strategies and teaching materials. Editors Nieli Langer and Terry Tirrito meet the challenge of educating and training students and providers of service to an aging population in all the various instructional programs (gerontology/geriatrics degrees) and non-credit workshops currently offered in different settings (hospitals, nursing homes, professional associations, in-service training, etc). By developing and explaining a multidisciplinary approach to working with older adults in areas related to health, education, ethics, law, cultural competency for a multicultural population, translating social policy into practice, spirituality, and human services, the editors provide an imaginative and thought-provoking unmet need for gerontology educators by providing them with teaching and practice strategies in aging education.
