Growing Old : A Journey Toward Self-Discovery Danielle Quinodoz

Friday, November 4 6:30-9pm

“People react differently to the process of aging. Some people shy away from old age for as long as they can and eventually spend it reflecting on times when they were physically and mentally stronger and more independent. For others old age is embraced as a new adventure and something to look forward to.”

- Danielle Quinodoz

Danielle Quinodoz, Swiss Psychoanalyst and Author will present, Growing Old: A Journey of Self-Discovery, in which she will examine the conscious and unconscious difficulties that limit therapists' ability to help individuals reconstruct their internal past while also listening sensitively to current and future needs. Helping individuals to see their lives through the chronology of different phases, may help them to express the joyful and painful aspects of their expereince and guide a journey of self-discovery. (Special thanks to Bill Cornell for his assistance in the arrangement of this event).
