Description

Communication and the Aging Process: Interaction throughout the Life Cycle focuses on the process of development from infancy through old age, particularly noting the value of communication, social interaction, and social networks. The manuscript first offers information on development throughout the life cycle, as well as models of development, crisis and change, and methodology. The text then discusses communicative interaction and origins of communication, including interpersonal cognition, social interaction, caretaker-child interaction, communication between children, and language development. The book surveys adolescence and adulthood, psychological characteristics of the aged, and social world of the aged. Personality and morale, retirement and widowhood, attitudes toward the aged, and norms and rules are discussed. The manuscript also takes a look at the social networks of the aged and communicative interaction and the aged. Concerns include family, neighbors, friends, misperceptions between generations, and thought process and communication. The text is a vital source of data for readers interested in the study of life cycle.
