What is Guided Autobiography?
Guided Autobiography was developed 40+ years ago by James Birren Ph.D., founding dean of the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology and founding director of the Ethel Percy Andrus Gerontology Center. A pioneer in gerontology research, his work is carried on through the Birren Center for Autobiographical Studies, which trains instructors worldwide.
