In many areas of health care, there is now increasing enthusiasm for describing pathways to greater wellness rather than focusing more exclusively on impairment and pathology. Perhaps no area is in greater need of this rebalancing of emphasis than geriatric health care, given the forceful negative influence of ageism and the tendency for clinicians to treat disease in the elderly but to overlook education about optimizing health. Clinicians who have sought to understand more fully the liabilities of aging while also acquiring practical guidance in psychoeducation for the promotion of wellness will find much of value in Successful Cognitive and Emotional Aging.
