Summary: Aging is too often defined exclusively by the losses in ability and function that accrue until eventual death. Although this approach captures one side of the aging process, it misses an opposing set of changes that constitute key strengths that offset losses and help us to thrive. Lack of knowledge of these strengths creates a practice gap between the clinical needs of older patient and the limited ability of clinicians to identify and use these strengths to support therapeutic approaches. This talk will focus on several of these key strengths, including wisdom, resilience, purpose and creativity.
