How to Master “Rejuvenaging”—Growing Older with Enthusiasm

   

Episode description:  

As we kick off Older Americans Month, what better way to celebrate their contributions than to highlight the perspective and achievements of an extraordinarily active octogenarian. In today’s episode, we talk with  Dr. Ronald Kaiser, an innovator in the field of positive health psychology, who has developed the concept he calls “Rejuvenaging: the Art and Science of Growing Older with Enthusiasm.” During his half century of helping others, Dr. Kaiser has evolved an approach to working with people that emphasizes their abilities to take charge of their lives and build emotional strength to overcome obstacles and improve general mental health. He’ll talk about how we can own the aging process; master the 7 keys to Rejuvenaging; build strengths to overcome adversities; and experience the joy of “feeling your age.” He will describe his  broad range of individual psychotherapy and coaching programs, as well as collaborative training programs with business and community organizations, including active adult communities. Growing older, Dr. Kaiser notes, is not a spectator sport. At the same time, he sums up his philosophy with this statement: “If I knew how much fun old age would be, I’d have grown older faster.”
