Rezensionen
"In general, Valuing Older People fulfills its promise toprovide a comprehensive overview of the challenges facing olderpeople while simultaneously providing a new paradigm approach thatboth addresses the prejudice against this population as well asfocuses on better understanding the whole person. This book willappeal to clinicians and caregivers who are interested in workingwith this population. Researchers may also find value in this bookas a means of exploring possible areas of study."(PsycCRITIQUES, February 2011)

"Elspeth Stirling's intellect, wisdom and compassionate commitmentto the well being of older people shines through in this book,which skilfully weaves together social role valorisation andpositive psychology to create a 'new' positive psychology ofageing. It represents a revolutionary challenge not only toClinical Psychology and related professions, but also to themechanisms and attitudes of Western society in general. I predictthis book will come to be judged as a milestone in the literatureon the psychology of ageing."
--Dr Sinclair Lough, Head of Psychology Services forOlder People, Dorset PCT

"At a time when age equality is being promoted as a policy, thisbook provides a welcome antidote to dogma, communicating a positivepsychology of ageing that is grounded equally in theory andpractice. Social Role Valorization has found its champion inrelation to ageing and older people in Elspeth Stirling, and may atlast make its long-awaited contribution to this challenging area ofhuman experience. Blended with insights from Cognitive AnalyticTherapy and with illustrative case examples, this is a powerful,refreshing book that could change the way we see older people andageing. Recommended for all those who work with olderpeople."
-- Bob Woods, Professor of Clinical Psychology of OlderPeople, Bangor University, UK
