Handbook of Adult Resilience

The first book to move beyond childhood and adolescence to explore processes of resilience across the lifespan, this cutting-edge volume synthesizes the best current research in the field.  Contributors offer a comprehensive examination of resilience at multiple levels of analysis, from genetic and physiological factors through individual, family, and community processes. Compelling topics include:

  • Whether resilience is best understood as a trait, a dynamic developmental process, an outcome, or all of the above
  • How resilience intersects with health and well-being across the adult life cycle
  • Cross-cultural issues in conceptualization and measurement
  • Ways to enhance adult resilience, including reviews of exemplary programs.
