9781585623518: Successful Cognitive and Emotional Aging

The next two decades will see a profound demographic transformation toward an aging population on a scale never seen before in the entire human history. There have been recent scientific findings on healthy brain aging that have challenged the centuries-old thinking, paving the way for new strategies to maintain and enhance cognitive abilities, functioning, and well-being in older age. From topics as diverse as genes and molecular building blocks to physical exercise, nutrition, wisdom, and spirituality, the editors of Successful Cognitive and Emotional Aging have gathered the foremost experts in aging research in a monograph designed to provide the state of the science of healthy brain aging in practical terms. This book should prove invaluable to clinicians, scientists, students, and for anyone with a desire to learn more about how to increase the odds of successful cognitive and emotional aging.

Review:

Depp and Jeste s book is a brilliant account of successful cognitive and emotional aging. The focus on success, and on success in particular in cognitive and emotional realms, is a most welcome departure from accounts focusing on pathology. Jeste and Depp have enlisted foremost experts on behavioral and psychosocial aspects of aging, biological aspects, and prevention and intervention strategies, with each chapter not only laying out the most recent research, but also summarizing with key points and recommended reading. This book will be of great use not only to geriatric researchers, but also to practicing doctors and other clinicians who treat a geriatric population. Indeed, the book, written in a clear and accessible way, might appeal to a general public that is keenly interested in successful aging. Likely to be a key text on successful aging for many years to come a real tour de force. --Elyn R. Saks, J.D., Orrin B. Evans Professor of Law, Psychology, and Psychiatry and the Behavioral Sciences at the University of Southern California Gould School of Law; Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego, School of

In Successful Cognitive and Emotional Aging by Jeste and Depp have assembled a distinguished set of experts to consider an age-old question: How does one achieve a long and satisfying life? Drawing on cutting edge research, the answers span molecules and genes to social relationships and spirituality. This unique handbook offers fresh and thoughtful insights into aging and human development. --Laura L. Carstensen, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology and the Fairleigh S. Dickinson Jr. Professor in Public Policy

Successful Cognitive and Emotional Aging is a fascinating, informative, and compelling read that presents a broad based approach to cognitive and emotional aging and the timing couldn t be better as baby boomers are poised to come of age . Chapters, which cover behavioral and psychosocial, biological and prevention and intervention strategies, are authored by experts in the field and are cutting edge, well-written, and well documented. The final chapter, a summary of the book, contains many useful recommendations. --Kathleen C. Buckwalter, Ph.D., RN, FAAN, Sally Mathis Hartwig Professor of Gerontological Nursing Research, Director, The University of Iowa John A. Hartford Center of Geriatric Nursing Excellence

Book Description American Psychiatric Association Publishing, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The critical importance of brain health to the well-being of older adults is becoming increasingly clear. However, an important aspect that interests most people relates to what clinicians and their adult patients and family members can do to retain and even improve cognitive and emotional functioning as they age. Successful Cognitive and Emotional Aging thoroughly discusses the neuroscience of healthy aging and presents effective strategies for staying lively, engaged, and positive.The book is organized into three parts. The first one, focusing on behavioral and psychosocial aspects, strives to place cognitive aging in a broad context. With chapters that explore such topics as the meaning of wisdom, the role of spirituality in healthy aging, and what centenarians can teach us about cognition and emotion, this section sets the stage for a rich, robust, yet nuanced treatment of its subject. The second part addresses the biological aspects and presents the scientific foundations of cognitive aging, as well as reviews the research on the role of factors such as stress, resilience, and diet. Finally, the third section addresses prevention and intervention strategies in a practical, down-to-earth fashion, addressing questions such as What environments encourage physical activity? and How can we promote resilience? Several features of the book are especially noteworthy:  The book bridges the gap between popular science for a lay audience and the heavily theoretical, academic approach of other books on the aging brain, making it suitable not only for clinicians but for their patients and family members as well. The fascinating story of an innovative intergenerational school makes the case for meaningful activity -- not just for the older participants but for the entire community -- and is suggestive of the plethora of possible programs that might prove effective at keeping the older population engaged and contributing. Results from a 70-year longitudinal study are extensively reviewed and identify the coping strategies that seem to bring about well-being in older age. The most promising strategies for successful aging, applicable to a large majority of the population, are summarized by the editors so that clinicians as well as consumers of healthcare may implement them as they see fit. As the baby boomers reach what used to be considered old age, the demand for evidence-based strategies for retaining and improving cognition will only increase. Fortunately, as the editors note, it is never too early or too late to start working toward the goal of improving brain health. Bookseller Inventory # AAR9781585623518
