Description - The Art and Science of Reminiscing by Jeffrey D. Webster
Although recognition of reminiscing as a potentially adaptive process can be traced back over 30 years to the seminal work of Robert Butler (as discussed in the Foreword), there has been little effort to consolidate the work and paint a complete picture of reminiscing as an entity. Here, reminiscing is presented as a multi-disciplinary topic, examining the theory of, and research on, reminiscing. The book also discusses the different ways of conducting life-review interviews and explores therapeutic applications. Contributors to this book, many of whom are pioneers and leading figures in the field, discuss and elaborate their latest thinking and research findings from multiple perspectives. The volume's strength derives from its multi-disciplinary (nursing, psychiatry, psychology, gerontology, community advocacy) and multinational (Australia, Canada, England, Sweden and the United States) treatment. James Birren, Irene Burnside, and Phillipe Cappeliez are a few of the eminent scholars authoring this volume.
