The many significant technological and medical advances of the 21 st century cannot overcome the escalating risk posed to older adults by such stressors as pain, weakness, fatigue, depression, anxiety, memory and other cognitive deficits, hearing loss, visual impairment, isolation, marginalization, and physical and mental illness. In order to overcome these and other challenges, and to maintain as high a quality of life as possible, older adults and the professionals who treat them need to promote and develop the capacity for resilience, which is innate in all of us to some degree.

Produktbeschreibung
The many significant technological and medical advances of the 21st century cannot overcome the escalating risk posed to older adults by such stressors as pain, weakness, fatigue, depression, anxiety, memory and other cognitive deficits, hearing loss, visual impairment, isolation, marginalization, and physical and mental illness. In order to overcome these and other challenges, and to maintain as high a quality of life as possible, older adults and the professionals who treat them need to promote and develop the capacity for resilience, which is innate in all of us to some degree. The purpose of this book is to provide the current scientific theory, clinical guidelines, and real-world interventions with regard to resilience as a clinical tool. To that end, the book addresses such issues as concepts and operationalization of resilience; relevance of resilience to successful aging; impact of personality and genetics on resilience; relationship between resilience and motivation; relationship between resilience and survival; promoting resilience in long-term care; and the lifespan approach to resilience.

By addressing ways in which the hypothetical and theoretical concepts of resilience can be applied in geriatric practice, Resilience in Aging provides inroads to the current knowledge and practice of resilience from the perspectives of physiology, psychology, culture, creativity, and economics. In addition, the book considers the impact of resilience on critical aspects of life for older adults such as policy issues (e.g., nursing home policies, Medicare guidelines), health and wellness, motivation, spirituality, and survival. Following these discussions, the book focuses on interventions that increase resilience. The intervention chapters include case studies and are intended to be useful at the clinical level. The book concludes with a discussion of future directions in optimizing resilience in the elderly and the importance of a lifespan approach to aging.

Rezensionen
From the reviews: "Provide a wealth of information regarding emerging trends in the area of resilience and aging as well as important insights regarding areas of need for future research. ... offer a broad range of material for researchers and other professionals who want to keep abreast of emerging developments in the area of resilience and aging as well as those interested in enhancing their breadth of knowledge regarding the topic." (Molly M. Perkins, The Gerontologist, Vol. 54 (1), 2014) "Provides an interesting account of resilience-an important concept with respect to understanding the outcomes of human aging. ... Resilience in Aging: Concepts, Research, and Outcomes represents a unique account of the multiple aspects of resilience as they relate to the aging process. ... it offers readers ample opportunity to form their own views of this term and of how it may apply to them personally. As such, the book is a valuable addition to the literature on resilience in aging." (Ross Andel, Journal of the American Medical Association, May, 2011) "This multiauthored book explores the concept of resilience in old age. ... The audience is primarily gerontologists. ... This book is timely. It has a thorough discussion of many aspects of the developing concept of resiliency in old age. ... Even if the notions of resiliency evolve and change somewhat with time, this seems to be a significant idea in contemporary gerontology, making this book well worth reading." (David O. Staats, Doody's Review Service, January, 2010)…mehr
