Product Description Review

"Framed brilliantly, this book is the mother lode of scientific knowledge on a profoundly important topic. The editors recognize that understanding why some individuals prevail in the face of adversity – and even flourish – must encompass numerous influences, from personal qualities to social networks and communities. Importantly, the final section presents resilience-promoting interventions designed to build the strengths required to surmount major life difficulties. It will be the definitive source on adult resilience for years to come." – Carol D. Ryff, Director, Institute on Aging, and Professor of Psychology, University of Wisconsin-Madison

"Resilience is a psychological concept that has excited many investigators and practitioners, but it has been difficult to define clearly or measure reliably. This handbook gathers together the clearest thinkers in the field to tackle this idea from biological, emotional, cognitive, developmental, social, and even policy perspectives. There is no other book available with this kind of reach, and it should be on the shelf of anyone contemplating research on resilience or for whom the idea of resilience helps to organize clinical and community-based interventions. This volume includes a fabulous group of contributors writing at the cutting edge of the field." – Peter Salovey, Chris Argyris Professor of Psychology, Yale University

"Scholars and students alike will find the Handbook of Adult Resilience to be invaluable. Simply stated, this is the most important book to date on the topic of resilience." – John T. Cacioppo, Tiffany and Margaret Blake Distinguished Service Professor and Director, Center for Cognitive and Social Neuroscience, University of Chicago
