Dr. Robert D. Hill has studied issues of normal and pathological aging internationally at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden and in the Netherlands through a Fulbright Fellowship at Maastricht University where he developed and wrote Positive Aging. A licensed psychologist in the State of Utah and the Chair of the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Utah, he holds a diplomate in Counseling Psychology from the American Board of Professional Psychology.
"An increasing number of books address human aging. Some are scholarly descriptions of the physical and mental decline that accompanies aging. Many more are popular prescriptions for avoiding that decline, with formulas for keeping physically or mentally younger. Robert Hill takes a different approach. First he confirms that aging, and even decline, are inevitable. But then he suggests that maturation is the completion of life. And most importantly, he offers strategies for making the most of one's later years. Seven Strategies for Positive Aging can help you optimize this experience for yourself, for those you care about, or for your professional clientele." -- John Nelson, co-author of What Color is Your Parachute?
