Is there really such a thing as a midlife crisis - a true crisis in a person's life that happens in midlife? Yes, there is. But fortunately for most of us, it is a fairly rare event. Unlike the midlife crisis, a midlife transition is a quasi-universal reaction to the major changes that take place in midlife, mentally, physically, and in relationships. This book describes the powerful, dynamic forces that underlie both the midlife crisis and midlife transition, and provides, through clinical case material, a detailed description of each. With expertise, understanding and empathy, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Calvin Colarusso, M.D., uses his 50 years of experience of working with midlife individuals to explain this hackneyed, but real, crisis in plain English for the general public. Think of this book as a way to calmly navigate through the turbulent waters of midlife without experiencing a true midlife crisis or a particularly difficult midlife transition; and to understand the often-times puzzling behavior of those you know and love.

They portray middle-aged men and women facing the special issues dealing with crisis, aging and mortality, and the desire for renewal. Listeners will find that many midlife problems they thought were unique to our time are, in fact, timeless, and that their ultimate resolutions as described in these stories guide us through the peaks and valleys of midlife. 1.

Are you feeling blindsided by midlife? You’re not alone, and you’re not crazy. Our current culture tells us that midlife (ages 40 to 65) is a time of unraveling, chaos, and uncertainty for women. This doesn’t have to be true. Midlife is an opportunity, not a crisis. Our bodies, minds, and lives are changing. Many of us feel off balance, wondering if this is all there is? Some of us feel completely unprepared. No one told us what to expect or that midlife is a magical and transformative time of renewal that is just the beginning, not the end.In Piloting Your Life, diverse women from around the world share their personal stories of learning, growing, and thriving through midlife to inspire you to explore and experiment. Terri Hanson Mead candidly shares her extensive research on happiness, sex, friendship, money, and health to help you discover and live your life. It’s time to throw off the chains of embarrassment and shatter the stereotypes for women in midlife. Disengage autopilot, take the controls, and be the pilot in your own life. 1. Language: English.
