BATISTONI, Samila Sathler Tavares  and  NERI, Anita Liberalesso. Social class perception among elderly people and its relationship with ageing. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2007, vol.1, n.2, pp. 03-10. ISSN 1982-1247.

The present theoretical essay aimed to analyse the"perceived social class concept" and"perceived social mobility" in the context of ageing psychology. The need for the comprehension of the relationships between auto-description of social class and emotional aspects of ageing, as well as its influence in the occurrence of depressive symptoms in ageing, is discussed. This paper calls attention for possible evolutive differences in class auto-description and social mobility perception in life course and it brings reflections on the methodological aspects of the investigation on this thematic.

Keywords : Ageing psychology; Depression; Social class; Ageing.
