Abstract The past several decades have witnessed unidimensional decline models of aging give way to life-span developmental models that consider how specific processes and strategies facilitate adaptive aging.

Disengagement theory, which dominated the study of social aging for decades, maintained that as people reach old age, they become emotionally distanced and detached from loved ones in symbolic preparation for death.
As empirical investigation grew, however, observed patterns did not support key postulates of disengagement theory. More recent models reconcile social and emotional trajectories.

Consequently, whereas older people regulate low levels of negative distress quite well, they have greater difficulty when they experience distress for relatively long periods of time.
When people employ strategies that allow them to avoid negative emotional experiences, they experience higher levels of well-being compared with younger adults. Unfortunately, unavoidable negative situations often increase with age, such as experiencing the loss of people who provide life with meaning; experiencing functional limitations that cause pain and daily hassles, and the demands of caregiving.
