CANCELED: Coping with Mid-Life: Crisis to Transition
The current public health concern involving the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is continuing to unfold. The Library has been working closely with local and state authorities to make decisions that prioritize public health and safety. Per CDC guidelines for public gatherings, out of an abundance of caution, most events will be canceled or postponed until such time as more information is available and health officials provide updated guidance. At this time, these are only precautionary measures as we consider and care for the safety of our patrons. We are working on rescheduling the program in the future.
Midlife crisis is a term coined in 1965 by Elliott Jaques defining a time where adults come to realize their own mortality and what life remains. Some of the challenges of mid-life are fear and anxiety, loss of job, transition to a new career, discontentment with life, divorce or widowhood and letting go of resentments.
How can we turn a mid-life crisis into a maturational experience resulting in a transition to a renewed sense of purpose in life?
This workshop will provide a discussion on what may cause a mid-life crisis, and some strategies for beginning to transform a crisis into a growth experience.
Topics covered include: Improve relationships with others, decide whether to stay in a marriage, talk about the disappointments and challenges, decide what they want the future to look like, find meaning in life’s changes, identify new goals and establish better relationships with adult children and others.
