Chapter 8 discusses individual and cultural diversity considerations in geropsychology, including how diversity is a broader concept when considered at the individual and cultural levels. It addresses how diversity encompasses ethnicity and race as well as age, gender, income, education, location of residence, national origin (US-born, foreign-born, immigrant status), language, family composition, disability (physical, cognitive, emotional), religion/spirituality, and sexual orientation. It covers the need for the conceptualization of geropsychology to encompass diversity as a foundational competence, and to provide for the ability to meet the needs of today’s changing demographic, of committing the profession to social responsibility, and of ensuring that core practices of assessment, intervention, and consultation will remain innovative and relevant for the needs of older adults.
