Integrating existential-humanistic and process-oriented philosophy and methodology with the latest research in gerontology, this workshop will help participants understand the concept and practice of eldership and invite them to reflect on their own beliefs about adulthood and aging.
Participants will explore possibilities for developing new identity constructions and frameworks for conceptualizing aging, as well as meaning and purpose in old age. This new perspective can support not only psychotherapists but also any any person who is interested in more effectively working with elders and themselves. This approach and learning also contributes to the health and well-being of individuals and communities in general.
More than ever, we crave a new definition of aging that borrows from the great thinkers, artists, philosophers and wisdom traditions throughout history. Blending existential, process-oriented psychotherapeutic insights and centuries of philosophical wisdom with modern pragmatism learned from being a CEO of eldercare communities in the San Francisco Bay Area for over a quarter of a century, this workshop seeks a thoughtful map on aging, not a “To Do” list that illuminates yet another reason to fail.
Eldership isn’t a state, but a process. It’s not something to be achieved, but practiced in our own unique journey!
