Aging: The Penultimate Transition

Saturday Workshop

Saturday, December 5, 2020

10:00 am– 3:00 pm
A daylong online Zoom seminar led by Julie Bondanza, PhD

Contact hours: 4 CE contact hours for Licensed NYS Social Workers, Psychoanalysts and Creative Arts Therapists for this program.

Aging held a special significance for Jung and he wrote extensively about it as a crowning of a life struggle with individuation. In “The Stages of Life” he writes that an aging person has a duty and responsibility to devote serious attention to himself/herself. Jung called this period the “Afternoon of Life,” a time to explore what we have neglected or repressed during our lifetime. This session will explore both the losses and opportunities for transformation using life examples, dreams, myths and fairy tales. We will name and describe three losses that occur as people age, explain the importance of life review in the aging process, describe the final stage of Erik Erikson’s developmental process and give examples of how this works, explore the meaning of a “second childhood” from both a negative and positive point of view and examine from a Jungian point of view the role of the soul and death.
