Aging and Spirituality: Spiritual Dimensions of Aging Theory, Research, Practice, and Policy discusses spirituality, what it is and what it means, and how it affects the overall well-being of the aging and older population. Among other topics, this book provides: research data on spirituality, including findings on connections to physical and mental health; attitudes toward death and dying, and other life themes; and guidelines for professionals for integrating and assessing spirituality in practice settings, human services, and elder-related programs. This is a guide designed for gerontologists; clergy; religious educators; social workers; health care professionals; and those working with or interested in issues related to the older population.
