≪Organizer Abstract≫
This thematic session is aimed at finding a solution to promote positive development in old age. This session brings together a variety of paths to wonderful aging that will shed light on well-being beyond the limitations related to old age.
Three presentations will discuss research and evidence-based practice on the importance of "gerotranscendence"(a theory that highlights growth, interconnectedness,and wisdom) and show how some intervention programs can support the development of a positive self. A workshop that further strengthens and advances the programs is conducted.
