What happens to old psychologists? A preliminary report

  • Ruth Aisenberg

Abstract

Increasing attention has recently been focussed on the later years of life—their special characteristics, problems and rewards. Experience with the scientific literature leads one to conclude that very little is known about the psychological aspects of growing older. Indeed, except for those who present pressing social problems or are ill, there is precious little data available on what life after middle age is really like. It seemed logical to approach for information those who not only have reached the so-called retirement years but also have had the psychological background to enable them to provide personal insights while maintaining some degree of objectivity. It was for these reasons that the investigation to be described was undertaken.
