During the fall of 2015, five books in which the Chair has drafted a chapter were published. One of these chapters, written by Caroline Pelletier  and Marie Beaulieu, was published in the 3rd edition of the book Introduction au travail social (Introduction to social work) directed by Jean-Pierre Deslauriers and Daniel Turcotte.

This chapter is about gerontological social work and is entitled Le travail social auprès des personnes aînées (Social work with Seniors). A second chapter focuses on ageism. It was published in the book Représentations et discours sur le vieillissement. La face cachée de l’âgisme? (Representations and Discourses on Aging. The Hidden Face of Ageism?) directed by Martine Lagacé. This chapter which was written by Marie Beaulieu, Ana Flavia de Oliveira Batista, Josée Lévesque and Jean Vézina is entitled Éduquer à contrer l'âgisme à défaut de pouvoir bien évaluer! Une version contemporaine québécoise du Quiz factuel sur le vieillissement de Palmore (Educate to countering ageism if unable to clearly assess it! A Quebec contemporary version of Palmore’s Factual Quiz on Aging). Two other chapters were published in the same book: Droits de vieillir et citoyenneté des aînés. Pour une perspective internationale (Rights to Age and Seniors’ citizenship. For an International Perspective). One of them proposes a critical reflection on public policies to countering mistreatment of older adults from resources available in Wallonia. This was written by Marie Beaulieu, Nicolas Berg and Marie-Ève Bédard. The other deals with the implementation and conditions of three pilot projects for the Age-Friendly Cities Program (AFCs). The last and most recent chapter also focuses on the Age-Friendly Municipalities (AFMs). It is entitled Aged-Friendly City in Quebec (Canada), or "Alone It Goes Faster, Together It Goes Further" and was published in the book International Perspectives on Age-Friendly Cities directed by Francis G. Caro & Kelly G. Fitzgerald. These last two chapters on AFMs reflected the collaboration between Marie Beaulieu and the AFM research team directed by Suzanne Garon.
