Resilienz im Alter

Chapter

Zusammenfassung

Ziel der folgenden Expertise ist es, einen Überblick über Befunde und theoretische Sichtweisen aus der Lebensspannen-Psychologie zum Thema „Resilienz im Alter“ zu geben und diese zu Empfehlungen für Politik und Praxis zu integrieren. Dazu ist es zunächst nötig, eine Begriffsklärung vorzunehmen und auf einige der zentralen Probleme der Resilienzforschung hinzuweisen. Daran schließt sich ein illustrierender Forschungsüberblick zu Resilienz in drei zentralen psychologischen Funktionsbereichen, Kognition, Selbst und Persönlichkeit und soziale Beziehungen an. Den Schluß bilden schließlich praxis- und politikrelevante Empfehlungen.
