Instructor: Hélène Tragos Stelian
In midlife, many of us will face an overload of demands coming from our work, children, and aging parents, not to mention our own struggles with relationships, health, and identity. As a result, we will feel a need to examine who we are, where we’ve been, and what we want out of our second half. In this lecture and discussion, we delve into the challenges and opportunities of midlife, and we learn the critical steps we need to take not only to survive but to thrive, in middle age and beyond.
Only a few great thinkers (psychologists Erik Erikson and Carl Jung in particular) gave much credence to the proposition that life’s second half was a fertile period for personal development. This presentation assumes that premise and builds on it.
*This session includes an individual 30-minute follow up session with Hélène.
