This course provides an examination of personality and social psychological approaches to the aging process. With respect to personality, we will look at how aging experts have conceptualized and studied the “interior life” of older adults, especially examining how personality and a sense of self in later life are both related to and different from those aspects earlier in life. At the level of social interaction, the objectives of the course are to provide an understanding of the relationships older adults have across the lifespan and how these shape their “interior life.” Throughout the semester, we will examine how the growth of the aging population worldwide has changed what it means to be an older adult today, particularly what impact it has had, and will continue to have, on the social psychological aspects of individuals as they age across the lifespan. Attention will be given to key developments related to ageism, technological advancements in healthcare, changing family structures, and the impact on policy.
