Challenges: Managing Life Transitions Workshop

Please join Mary Robinson on Wednesday February 8th, from Noon - 1 PM for a workshop on managing life transitions.  The workshop is part of The Academy of Clinical and Applied Psychoanalysis' Brown Bag Lunch series.  So yes, bring your lunch! Location: 301 S. Livingston Avenue, Livingston, NJ.  RSVP is not required but appreciated.  Call 973-629-1005 or CEUs are available.  

The talk will identify the similarities and differences in traversing various life transitions. Marriage, children, divorce, retirement, illness and death are some of the major life transitions which we are faced with. These and other changes over the lifespan offer us the opportunity to grow and mature. Therapists will be taught how to support clients in navigating the challenges that arise during these times. Through the use of case presentations therapists will acquire the skills to identify and work with obstacles that may arise to prevent successful negotiation of these life transitions.
