Ressourcen aktivieren: Förderung von Wohlbefinden bei älteren Menschen

Part of the Psychotherapie: Praxis book series (ÜSÜR)

Zusammenfassung

In einer alternden Gesellschaft stellt sich die Frage, ob verschiedene Formen des Wohlbefindens erhalten, stabil bleiben, abnehmen oder gar wachsen. Ist das Wohlbefinden älterer Menschen zugleich auch ein Garant für deren Gesundheit? Und wenn ja, von welchen kontextuellen Faktoren wie sozioökonomischer Position, sozialen Bindungen oder Handlungsmöglichkeiten hängt dies ab? Oder ist das Wohlbefinden älterer Menschen eher das Produkt von individuellen Voraussetzungen einer „glücklichen“, widerstandsfähigen und anpassungsfähigen Person? Können älteren Menschen Erfahrungen zuteilwerden, die ihr Wohlbefinden und ihre Gesundheit auch im Rahmen präventiver und therapeutischer Bemühungen stabilisieren, in dem sie das Leben retrospektiv als wertvoll gestalten und kritischen Lebensereignissen etwas entgegensetzen zu können?
