Mature minds have the potential for continued growth, learning and creative intelligence. This book, inspired by the work of Dr. Gene Cohen, examines the aging mind from an asset-based perspective.
The human mind has the potential for continued growth and development throughout life. And, the greatest manifestation of human potential is to be found in creative expression and the power of the human mind not just to think, but also to develop creatively. Creative aging implies that with age we continue to enrich the incredible powers of our minds and to deepen our engagement with creative expression. The potential for continued development of our mental capacities is only slowed by disease or by a failure to leverage our years of experience to enduringly stimulate, challenge and nurture our minds. Without denying the struggles that accompany old age, the movement of creative aging, as described in this book, focuses on the potential for continued creative development across the lifespan.
