Innovative, nonpathologized, mutually empowering opportunities for psychologists and trainees to work with older adults are rare—but participatory action research (PAR) projects offer a model for such interventions. First, PAR is introduced as an inclusive, wide-ranging approach to knowledge creation that also offers growthful benefits to participants. Next, the course of an ongoing multiyear PAR collaboration in a naturally occurring retirement community (NORC) is profiled. Finally, key elements of PAR preparation and practice for psychologists are summarized, with emphasis on its value within graduate training.
