This ground-breaking new book in the field of aging and gerontological social work fills a major gap in social work literature by debunking the myth that older people are less productive than younger ones. It redefines and expands the profession's responsibility in previously unexplored territory, including a much-needed emphasis on promoting and sustaining empowerment, voice, and engagement of older adults in the lifeblood of their families and communities. Perspectives on Productive Aging lays out a far-reaching set of contemporary functions that social workers will need to assume in advocating for elder rights and quality of life. Focusing on the new cohort of older adults and those that will follow them - the leading edge baby boomers who are nearing retirement - the book expands our professional perspective on working with elders who are educated, active, mobile, financially secure, and engaged. It examines social work practice in nontraditional practice areas and settings, including physical fitness, spirituality and religion, the workplace, voluntarism, and education and learning. The first in the NASW Press Practice Series on Aging, this challenging book is a must for practitioners, faculty, and students who work with older adults. In addition, it is a valuable tool for gerontological social work continuing education workshops and community seminars in agencies that work with elders and their families.Also available:Gerontology for Health Professionals: A Practice Guide - ISBN 0871012839Women at Midlife: Life Experiences and Implications for the Helping Professions - ISBN 0871013517NASW Press NASW Press, a division of National Association of Social Workers (NASW), is a leading scholarly press in the social sciences.
