Summary In the future an increasing number of people in the Western world can expect to live a long life, and the proportion of elderly people in the population will increase significantly as well. But until now development psychology has focused primarily on the changes occurring in childhood and early adulthood; while psychological changes in late adulthood have attracted less attention. The major demographic changes that lie ahead mean that modern psychologists now need to gain thorough knowledge of psychological development in late adulthood
