Resilience and Aging Research and Practice
Helen Lavretsky, MD, MS
(AAGP Member author)

Resilience is a key component in maintaining health and happiness in old age. When aging adults struggle with social isolation, financial instability, or the difficult work of caring for a spouse with a chronic illness, their levels of stress can be enormous. But many older adults are living longer and are trying to make the best of their later years despite being more vulnerable to stress. In Resilience and Aging, renowned geriatric psychiatrist Dr. Helen Lavretsky explains how enhanced resilience - which involves positively adapting to adversity in a way that maintains a person's biological and psychological equilibrium - can counter that vulnerability. She describes how care, practice, and research all can be redirected toward emphasizing the positive aspects of aging and prevention. Hardcover. Johns Hopkins Press. 2014.
