One of the hallmarks of the aging experience is change.  The Aging Issues Committee (AIC) invites you to join us for a series of six Zoom luncheon presentations/discussions on the subject of Later Life Transitions.  Each session will be led by one or two members of the Committee and will vary in format. Sessions will be scheduled on Fridays at noon and will be at least one month apart.  Topics include:

1.) Retirement

2.) Loss of Physical Capabilities (Including Driving)

3.) Moving to a Senior Facility 

4.) Becoming Caregiver to a Family Member

5.) Loss of a Spouse/Partner

6.) The Final Transition

In this fifth session of the series, Dr. Tayer will discuss the experiences of older adults who have lost a spouse/partner and the challenges they face.  She will describe research related to the impact of this transition on elders, to their health, their emotional well-being, their relationships and basic functioning.  She will lead discussion on the experience of suffering this so very profound loss, how to cope or to assist family or others in this circumstance.  Afterwards, Dr. Tayer will write an article summarizing the information and discussion for publication in the Aging Issues Committee newsletter, Age in Action.  

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) - This luncheon series qualifies for CPD Learning Category #2 - Academic  Self-Directed Learning for California licensed psychologists.  It also meets criteria for Cultural Diversity and/or Social Justice requirements.
