Overview

"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."

"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 social networks and communities. Importantly, the final section present resilience—promoting interventions designed to build the strengths required to surmonunt major life difficulties. It will be the definitive source on adult resilience for years to come."

"Resilience is a psychological concept that has excited amny investigators and practitioners, but tit has been difficult to define clearly or measure reliably. This hanbooks gather together the clearest thinkers in the feild to tackle this idea from biological, emothional, cognitive, developmenta, 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 feild."

Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Gary B Kaniuk, Psy.D. (Cermak Health Services)
Description: This book describes adult resilience — how people are able to rebound from difficulties to live productive, rewarding lives — across the lifespan, discussing research and interventions.
Purpose: According to the editors, "this handbook fully extends the currency of resilience concepts for the first time from basic biological processes through childhood to the domains of youth and adulthood, to broader societal variables in leadership and community-level processes.
Audience: They suggest the book will be of interest to researchers and practitioners in personality, social, and developmental psychology, health psychology, clinical and community psychology, and psychiatry, as well as graduate students in courses on the psychology of adulthood. The editors are professors of psychology and public affairs and public service at Arizona State University.
Features: The book starts with an introduction to the topic of resilience, defining it as "an outcome of successful adaptation to adversity." The book is organized to first address biological processes, then personal attributes, neighborhood disadvantages, and community support. The authors discuss biological processes such as neurochemical stress response and genetic polymorphism, as well as the interaction of genetics and environment. They describe personal attributes such as an integrated self, good interpersonal skills, and positive coping strategies as characteristic of the resilient personality. Psychopathology is discussed in terms of dysfunctional self-regulation, the inability to pursue multiple goals over an extended period of time and within different contexts. Resiliency across the lifespan is addressed, especially in terms of early trauma and its effect in adulthood. The authors then discuss living in dangerous and/or impoverished neighborhoods and overcoming the odds to become successful. Ethnic and cultural issues are important variables and the authors describe resiliency among immigrant communities. Lastly, they detail interventions to increase psychological resources in both individuals and communities. The book uses helpful figures and tables and includes an author and subject index.
Assessment: This excellent book is full of research findings that are foundational to the theories and interventions undergirding personality characteristics of resilient individuals and potential interventions. The authors walk readers through the developmental precursors and show how resiliency can be maintained across the lifespan, even in the lives of high-risk individuals. This well-written book is a must-read for anyone interested in this topic.

PsycCRITIQUES
"The coverage of topics is comprehensive, and the organization of the book is useful to the reader in that there is a logical sequence going from the individual (biologic) to the social....It covers a wide range of topics on resilience, including not only resilience of individuals but also of communities and neighborhoods, and even cities. It raises issues and future research concerns, and the chapters are well written, with fluidity and authority. Furthermore, whereas most of the literature on resilience so far has been on children, this is the first handbook to focus on resilience in individuals of adult age, which makes it an important addition to the literature....Highly recommended to a wide variety of individuals, from academic and practicing psychologists to social workers, physicians, stress researchers, sociologists, occupational therapists, community workers, and many others interested in understanding the development of healthy personas and in helping individuals coping with loss and adversity."—PsycCRITIQUES
The Psychologist
"The book's value lies in its evidence-based consideration of resilience across a range of domains and at many levels of analysis....The book is well organized, coherent, and accessible. Also, the concept of resilience travels well across subject boundaries, providing obvious linkages between seemingly disparate topics. The book's holistic approach fills a big gap in the literature and it should prove a valuable resource for students, researchers, practitioners, and policy makers with theoretical or applied interest in this fascinating and increasingly important topic."—The Psychologist
From the Publisher
"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, PhD, 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, PhD, Chris Argyris Professor of Psychology, Yale University

Cacioppo, PhD, Tiffany and Margaret Blake Distinguished Service Professor and Director, Center for Cognitive and Social Neuroscience, University of Chicago

Journal of Positive Psychology
“Provid[es] readers with a thorough, thoughtful, and varied treatise of psychological resilience in adulthood....Laudably, the volume includes perspectives that run the gamut of the behavioral sciences, including biological, cognitive, behavioral, and social psychology, as well as applied sub-disciplines spanning organizational, cultural, and health contexts. Such heterogeneity is very much a strength of the present volume….The volume contains several freestanding allusions to intriguing research findings and insightful observations, which further enhance the readers’ experience….The volume represents a hugely valuable resource for researchers and policy-makers interested in notions of resilience and their applicability to real-life contexts. The editors have successfully captured the vibrancy and diversity of this research area, and have certainly laid convincing groundwork for a case to be made that resilience research represents a coherent and viable subdiscipline-in-waiting.”—Journal of Positive Psychology
