Abstract: Knowing how to live a long, happy and healthy life is a universal desire of humankind. Adaptation and Well-Being is a narrative of the human journey, from the formation of identity to end of life, which explores a number of key issues related to well-being and the challenges we face. Combining positive psychology and a social psychological evolutionary perspective with colourful, anecdotal evidence from his full and varied experiences, the author interprets research from various stages of human development in order to meet the challenges of life and achieve optimal health and well-being.The book examines how an integrated identity and a healthy self-concept are key to successful adaptation and living. The author also discusses how emotional intelligence and communication are essentially linked to issues of culture and gender, and the importance of understanding gender differences is a central theme which runs through chapters on sexuality, gender and intimacy. The book also looks at the relationship of stress to well-being, the challenges of midlife and the end of life, and the search for meaning and purpose. Integrating classical and recent research and including cross-cultural perspectives, Adaptation and Well-Being will provide valuable reading for students on life-span courses in counselling and therapy, developmental psychology and social gerontology. Those on tertiary courses such as social work, welfare and nursing will also find this useful along with practitioners in these fields.
