Introduction What do we know about the sources of life-strengths that contribute to resilient aging and well-being of older adults? The answer is surprisingly little, compared with what we know about mental illness, dysfunction, and disorder in later adulthood. To date, the topic of human strengths and their determinants has been understudied. A lot is known about the genesis of depression, interpersonal stress, cognitive impairment, and physical decline in late-life functioning. Although we have some understanding of the vulnerabilities that overtake us with advancing age and how individuals struggle to compensate for them, much remains to be learned about the origins and sources of life-strengths that nourish older 15 16 Prem S.

Although a number of previous longitudinal studies of all-cause mortality among older adults have identified several socio-demographic factors, health status factors, and personality factors that have reduced or increased the risk of mortality, the links between resilience, longevity, and psychosocial resources have not been studied as extensively. In the research reported in this chapter, Fry and Debats view resilience to be a developmental process. 5-year longitudinal study of 385 older widows assessed the influence of psychosocial resource factors on their resilience and healthy longevity.

Two key developmental tasks for individuals, if they are to claim and pursue lives of purpose, are as follows:€(a) to discern what are good, or useful, objectives in life; and (b) to successfully and ethically realize those ends in life. Both tasks are the underpinnings of human resilience and emotional and spiritual well-being. This point is particularly well articulated by Lucas (1998) that a well-defined meaning for life makes for successful coping even when the worst possible trauma or affliction strikes or even in the face of chronic and terminal illness.
