Summary
"The oldest old - elders of 85 years and beyond - are now the fastest growing age cohort in North America. Sheldon Tobin's life work has been the psychology of these elders: he has explored the unique adaptive mechanisms - from religion to reminiscence and even aggression - that work to conserve the psychological sense of self, even as the physical self declines in extreme old age. Furthermore, Tobin's work bridges this expanding body of new knowledge into gerontologic practice for medical clinicians, social workers, gerontologic nurses, and students of aging."--Jacket
