Navigating Midlife (Out of Print)

Author(s): Robyn Vickers-Willis


For all women, particularly those from 35 years to their 50s, who feel the need for change in their lives but don't know how to make it happen. Firmly based on a psychological framework and using personal reflection, interviews, dreams, and metaphor, the information and techniques in the book will open a second half of life full of personal meaning, creativity, aliveness and new passions. At no other time in society have there been so many women at midlife looking for new answers, new attitudes and new ways of being. This powerful, insightful book offers women vital possibilities for meaningful and profound change in how they choose to live the second half of their lives. Picture this woman: she is aged between 35 and 50, and although relatively contented until recently, she is now experiencing bewildering feelings of sadness, anger, apathy and a yearning for a different life. With deep understanding and practical wisdom, Navigating Midlife illustrates why it is normal to suffer depression, anger, loss and doubt at this largely ignored developmental stage-midlife transition. Robyn Vickers-Willis believes that it is important for women to embrace these turbulent feelings, rather than ignore, sedate or run away from them. In this way they will navigate a path towards a strong and meaningful second half of life. Clear explanations and practical tools are given to assist women in their choices. Through shared personal stories, metaphor, dreams and reflections, and based on a sound psychological framework, you are given a map, complete with all the signposts, so you can choose your unique path to a second half of life full of personal meaning, new passions, aliveness and creativity. This ground-breaking and engaging book is an invaluable resource for women experiencing significant life changes and for health professionals working with women.
