Carolina Silva Sousa Francisco P. Rodríguez-Miranda About the authors

The choice of the topic ageing and educational resilience is a very important issue in the present context of adult training and education, aimed at preparing human beings to face, as they age, a successful active life in all relational contexts. The methodological design is based on conceptual tools, within the interface between aging and education resilience of the elderly. It can be presented as an important area of knowledge that enables the implementation and strengthening of capabilities that may contribute to overcome the difficulties inherent to the educational act, marked by the unpredictable and unrepeatable.
