Stress, Coping, and Aging

The 9th edition of the highly anticipated Handbook of the Psychology of Aging includes a chapter co-written by Lori Yancura of the Human Development and Family Studies program, part of the Dept. of Family and Consumer Sciences.

The chapter, “Stress, Coping, and Aging,”  is an integrative topic that includes the psychological, emotional, and physical aspects of adult development. This is particularly important in Hawaiʻi because the well-being of older adults, who are disproportionately affected by COVID and economic downturns, influences the well-being of all our communities here in the Islands.

“The Handbook is edited by the top scholars in the field and widely used as a reference,” Lori says. “It is very influential on many aspects of aging research, and an important resource for researchers and practitioners who study older adults around the world.”

She adds, “This contribution will help establish UH as a valued source of expertise on stress and coping in older adults, especially during times such as now when they need our help the most.”
