The paper addresses a spectrum of issues ranging from particular clinical concerns to broader perspectives on life transitions and successful ageing. The paper aims to improve community and policy makers' understanding of psychological aspects of successful ageing, and encourage the psychology profession to be guided by principles which promote healthy, successful and positive ageing in all levels of research, education and practice.
The recommendations assume that we recognise and value the diversity of our older citizens, and that as a profession our central goal is to combat ageism and empower older people to live satisfying lives whatever their circumstances.
