This special issue is devoted to the topic of risk and resilience in human development a topic that epitomizes the complexity of human development as a process of constancy and change throughout life The three empirical papers in this issue represent strong contributions to the growing corpus of research on risk and resilience in human development The first one focuses on the uniquely vulnerable population of urban ethnic minority adolescent males The second paper focuses on the risk and resilience from trauma in a sample of mostly Caucasian individuals from rural Iowa who were at the last assessment in the midst of transition into young adulthood It measures an array of mental disorders outcomes and reveals the theoretical importance of timing of the risk factor The last paper is a study begun in of a cohort of individuals with serious adolescent onset mental disorder It compares these individuals against the risk and resilience profiles of a matched sample without serious adolescent onset psychiatric disorder In sum this issue adds to the corpus of the frontiers of resilience research, A typically pessimistic view of aging is that it leads to a steady decline in physical and mental abilities In this volume leading gerontologists and geriatric researchers explore the immense potential of older adults to overcome the challenges of old age and pursue active lives with renewed vitality The contributors believe that resilience capacities diminishing with old age is a misconception and argue that individuals may successfully capitalize on their existing resources skills and cognitive processes in order to achieve new learning continuing growth and enhanced life satisfaction By identifying useful psychological resources such as social connectedness personal engagement and commitment openness to new experiences social support and sustained cognitive activity the authors present a balanced picture of resilient aging Older adults while coping with adversity and losses can be helped to maintain a complementary focus on psychological strengths positive emotions and regenerative capacities to achieve continued growth and healthy longevity, This handbook proposes a more integrative approach to women s depression in particular and mental health for all more generally Until recently women s health issues have centered on the topic of reproductive health because research focused almost exclusively on biological and anatomical differences distinguishing men and women However since it has been established that symptoms of depression and the diagnosis of depression are more prevalent in women this work now focuses on updating the biological psychological and sociopolitical explanations for the gender gap to better address efforts at treatment and prevention, There is a new generation of research in which scholars are investigating mental health and human development as not merely the absence of illness or dysfunction but also the presence of subjective well being Subjective well being is a fundamental facet of the quality of life The quality of an individual s life can be assessed externally and objectively or internally and subjectively From an objective standpoint other people measure and judge another s life according to criteria such as wealth or income educational attainment occupational prestige and health status or longevity Nations communities or individuals who are wealthier have more education and live longer are considered to have higher quality of life or personal well being The subjective standpoint emerged during the s as an important alternative to the objective approach to measuring individual s well being Subjectively individuals evaluate their own lives as evaluations made in theory after reviewing summing and weighing the substance of their lives in social context In short subjective well being is an evaluation or declaration that individuals make about the quality of their lives br br br br Research has clearly shown that measures of subjective well being which are conceptualized as indicators of mental health or mental well being are factorially distinct from but correlated with measures of symptoms of common mental disorders such as depression Despite countless proclamations that health is not merely the absence of illness there had been little or no empirical research to verify this assumption Research now supports the hypothesis that health is not merely the absence of illness it is also the presence of higher levels of subjective well being br br In turn there is growing recognition of the personal and social utility of subjective well being both higher levels of hedonic and eudaimonic wellbeing Increased subjective well being has been linked with higher personal and social goods higher business profits more worker productivity greater employee retention increased protection against mortality increased protection against the onset and increase of physical disability with aging improved cognitive and immune system functioning and increased levels of social capital such as civic responsibility generativity community involvement and volunteering This edited volume will bring together for the first time the growing scientific literature on positive mental health that is now being conducted in many countries other than the USA This will provide students and scholars with an invaluable source for teaching and for generating new ideas for furthering this important line of research br br
