Description

Attuned Aging: Moving Beyond Cultural Expectations, Experiencing Our Truest, Fullest Selves

How do we accept and even enjoy our bodies and our lives while living in a culture that demands an ideal body and eternal youth?

Aging is a challenge for all and also an opportunity to look more deeply at our own attitudes, feelings, and experiences.

Incorporating the thoughts of clinicians and other writers in this didactic and experiential presentation, we explore the realities of aging and the socially constructed expectations of how we should age with an eye towards developing new and positive perspectives.

Suitable for clinicians and nonclinicians.

Participants will:

-- Identify the larger cultural forces that affect thinking and feelings about aging.

-- Have the opportunity to become more comfortable about aging by understanding both the personal and cultural roots of their discomfort about aging.

-- The above, in turn, will aid practitioners in listening for client’s problematic reactions to aging while holding our own reactions.
