Much of the scientific research on resilience - our ability to bounce back

from adversity - has focused on how to build resilience in children. But

what about the grown-ups?


While resilience is an essential skill for healthy childhood development,

science shows that adults also can take steps to boost resilience in middle

age, which is often the time we need it most. Midlife can bring all kinds of

stressors, including divorce, the death of a parent, career setbacks and

retirement worries, yet many of us don't build the coping skills we need to

meet these challenges.
