Normal Aging: Myths and Realities

Single session orientations to normal aging are often helpful for older adults concerned with their personal aging journey. Participants are provided the current standard Maturity-Specific-Challenge Model of Aging developed by Knight (l983), and evaluate their personal maturing process and the specific developmental challenges that they can anticipate as a member of a cohort that is growing old together. Proactively engaging a range of normal physiological, cognitive, psychological and social challenges and strengths that come with getting older provides an opportunity for growth.
