What promotes health and happiness in old age?
Major advances in research have led us to a better understanding of the physical and psychological changes in old age. Although older adults often face significant health problems and personal losses, they are able to maintain high levels of well-being because their emotion regulation skills are more effective than those of younger adults.
Join us for a Chats in the Stacks book talk with Corinna Loeckenhoff, associate professor in the Department of Human Development in the College of Human Ecology. Her new book Emotion, Aging and Health (Bronfenbrenner Series on the Ecology of Human Development; published by the American Psychological Association, March 2016), highlights recent scientific advances demonstrating the profound effects of emotion on physical health. The book is coedited by Anthony D. Ong, associate professor of human development at Cornell.
Written by leading researchers in the field, the chapters explore the reciprocal relations between aging and emotion, and provide applications that will promote mental and physical health across the lifespan. Their research also highlights the role of culture and motivation in shaping emotional experience, and state-of-the-art methods and approaches for intervention.
The book talk series at Mann Library is supported by the Mary A. Morrison Public Education Fund.
