Psychology and ageing in Australia

Australian Psychologist

Author: Browning, C., Stacey, B.
Type: Journal Article
Year: 1999


The study of psychology and ageing in Australia has a long history dating back to the pioneering work of Alan Welford, Elsie Harwood and George Naylor. Today, Australian psychologists are active in promoting the study of ageing both within Australia and internationally. However, despite this strong research record and the changes in the age strcuture of the Australian population, the number of psychologists working with older people is relatively low. This article outlines some of the history of psychological research into ageing and argues a case for increased research.
