Brian Carpenter, PhD – “Psychology of Aging in the 2lst Century”


No matter how old you are, you’re aging! You started aging from the moment you were born. Professor Brian Carpenter will review what biological, psychological and social research has taught us about growing old. Find out what’s common with aging, what’s not normal and key components of successful aging. The trajectory of aging gets shaped very early in life, but there are forces that guide it along the way and steps you can take to maximize your later years.Brian Carpenter - The Source - Washington University in St. Louis
