For even the fittest, healthiest, and most vibrant among us, the truth is there are inevitable challenges that come from growing older. Major life transitions such as retirement, the loss of family or a partner, changes in our bodies, and changing social roles in everyday life can lead to feelings of uncertainty, loss of control, and even anxiety and depression. But aging doesn't have to be a negative thing. You can carve out your own path. This book will show you how to live with more vitality and joy-at any age!
The Positive Aging Handbook offers proven-effective, evidence-based skills drawn from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to help you learn the art of flexible thinking and feel more empowered and engaged with life. You'll discover strategies for managing anxiety and depression, as well as lifestyle tips to help reduce symptoms in the future. You'll also learn how your brain changes as you age, and find a wealth of strategies for managing these changes and making the most of your life.
If the changes you face as you age leave you feeling anxious, sad, or stressed, let this handbook guide you to take charge of your own aging process-and your mental health. You are worth it
“The Aging Well Workbook for Anxiety and Depression is an essential guide for older adults looking to improve their mental health. Written by a mental health expert, this practical workbook provides effective strategies and exercises to manage anxiety and depression in a clear and concise way. It’s a must-read for anyone who wants to age well and maintain their mental well-being.”
—Eric Lenze, MD, Renard professor; and head of psychiatry at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, MO
“The Aging Well Workbook for Anxiety and Depression is a terrific and much-needed addition to the field. Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) has all too often been treated as a one-size-fits-all-ages approach. Julie Erickson and Neil Rector ably zoom in on the concerns of older adults, and provide clear, concrete recommendations for dealing with the challenges of later life.”
—Randy J. Paterson, PhD, RPsych, author of The Assertiveness Workbook and How to Be Miserable
