A selection of articles from a vaierty of sources:

Ageing, loss, and learning: Hong Kong and Australian seniors / Gillian M. Boulton-Lewis — Educational Gerontology — In this article, the discussion of loss and its relationship to learning is based on the analysis of interview data from 39 older adults in Hong Kong and 40 in Australia. The focus of the research was on ageing and learning.

The effects of place attachment on social well-being in older adults /  Pouya Farokhnezhad Afshar — Educational Gerontology — Social well-being and place attachment are two important concepts in health and quality of life of older adults. There are few studies on the relationship between these concepts at the individual level.

Technology Access and Use, and Their Associations With Social Engagement Among Older Adults: Do Women and Men Differ? (2016) / Kim, J., Lee, H. Y., Christensen, M. C., Merighi, J. R. — Journals of Gerontology — his study supports the expansion of the successful aging model by incorporating ICT access and use. Further, it assists in the identification of specific technologies that promote active engagement in later life for women and men.

Telephone-Delivered Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Older, Rural Veterans with Depression and Anxiety in Home-Based Primary Care / Terri L. Barrera — Clinical Gerontologist —  Rural, homebound older adults are at increased risk for anxiety and depression and have limited access to mental health services. These individuals face many barriers to receiving evidence-based mental health treatment and would benefit from interventions that increase access to and efficiency of care.

Wide horizons and blurred boundaries: comparative perspectives on adult and lifelong learning / Lore Arthur — International Journal of Lifelong Education — This paper reflects upon Peter Jarvis’s contribution to comparative scholarship and the linked fields of comparative education and comparative adult education. Both have their own historical developments, literatures, issues and concerns; both have been influenced by Peter’s substantial works for close to fifty years – a period in time when the increasing demands of the global market economy have changed adult education beyond all recognition.
