Special Issue Call for Papers: Sexuality in Later Life
The Clinical Gerontologist is now accepting papers for a special issue on Sexuality in Later Life edited by Maggie Syme, PhD, MPH.
Papers can focus on a wide range of clinical issues related to psychosocial and cultural aspects of sexual health and wellness for older adults. This may include:
- clinical issues of sexual health, risk, well-being, and/or concerns across the life course;
- sexual wellness in diverse older age groups (e.g., LGB&T elders, racially diverse elders);
- clinical issues that intersect with specific life course events (e.g., end of life, caregiving);
- sexual expression and capacity among older adults in residential or home-based care;
- elder sexual abuse (ESA);
- impact of ageism on clinical care and/or sexual expression;
- and policies that affect sexual expression across contexts in older adulthood.
We welcome reviews, original research studies, and clinical comments.
Papers must address clinical implications on mental health policy and/or practice. Special populations are of interest (e.g., older adults with dementia, LGB&T elders), and we are particularly interested in reflecting diverse and international populations.
Deadline: July 15, 2020. Note, inclusion in the special issue is at the discretion of the special issue editors; it is possible that a paper will be accepted for a regular issue and not the special issue.
