Midlife is a time of intense questioning: "Who am I? What do I really want? Where am I going? Who is going with me?" These are fundamental questions emerging from within, particularly as it refers to re-defining Life's purpose and finding meaningful, lasting solutions for the big questions emerging. This presentation examines archetypal passages and developmental impasses of maturity and aging, and provides generative suggestions to navigate through the challenges. Identifying those developmental impasses in your clients will facilitate building concise, precise, and to-the-point therapeutic interventions.
