This lecture will be delivered via Zoom online.
In later life – do attachment principles still apply. Drawing on clinical, observational and personal experience, Jeremy will explore the psychodynamic ’tasks’ of the second half of life.
During this talk, Jeremy will touch on:
- The ‘reverse Oedipus’ and the challenge of letting go
- The evolutionary role of grandparents (literal and metaphorical) as culture-bearers
- What attachment research tells us about old age, adaptive and maladaptive
- Dante and Jung's map of pathways to graceful endings.
