Editorial Reviews


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)


"Resilience is a topic in the aging literature that has for the most part been overlooked, as it has been discussed mainly in relationship to child and young adult development. Resilience is also a difficult theoretical construct to define, measure, and apply, which can limit its scientific use. Yet, geriatric practitioners everyday see clinical evidence of the resilience process , as they work with older adults, who are dealing with chronic physical health care problems, dementia, loss of meaningful relationships, and changes in activities of daily living. This book is the first collective comprehensive effort to apply the concept of resilience to older adults and such a scientific endeavor is long overdue. It examines resilience from theoretical, physiological, emotional, psychological, social, spiritual, and cultural perspectives in a variety of different contexts, and examines interventions to support and nurture resilience in older adults. It reminds us that the resilience of the human spirit, the human capacity to adapt and survive in the face of adversity, is possible at any age." (Phyllis Braudy Harris, Ph.D., Professor & Chair, Department of Sociology, and Director of the Aging Studies Program, John Carroll University; Co-editor Dementia: The International Journal of Social Research & Practice)
