Abstract:

"What does it really mean to be a grown up in today?s world? We generally recognize only three developmental periods of life?childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. We assume that once we "get it together" with the right job, marry the right person, have children, and buy a home, all is settled and well. But adulthood itself presents varying levels of growth, and is rarely the respite of stability we expected. Turbulent emotional shifts can take place anywhere between the age of thirty-five and seventy when we question the choices we?ve made, realize our limitations, and feel stuck?commonly known as the "midlife crisis.""--The publisher.
