[Chapter 3 discusses the meaning and measures of adjustment to aging. General approaches to construct development and measurement techniques of adjustment to aging, namely, design considerations, measurement errors, validity and reliability issues, and early and current perspectives regarding the measurement of adjustment to aging are included in this chapter. Furthermore, this chapter debates the urgent need for good-quality psychometric data, supported by the use of appropriate, valid and reliable measures, and concludes with a proposed empirical model of adjustment to aging. This cross-cultural model for adjustment to aging may provide guidelines for the design of more effective interventions. Additionally, and given that older adults’ parameters can be measured reliably, it may allow the differentiation of older adults’ needs and motivations for adjustment to aging that are more likely to benefit from culture-adapted types of programs in the community and in clinical settings.]
