Meaning Of Life for Young and Old
September 6th – December 6th
1:30pm – 2:30pm
CLASS IS FULL
In the fall of 2019, Edenwald will again hold intergenerational discussions with Goucher students. This will be the third year for such discussions, which have proven both meaningful and enriching for both younger and older generations. Discussions will be facilitated by Dr. Brian Patrick, Goucher Psychology Professor, who will be bringing his psychology class to these discussions. The general topic to be discussed will be *Meaning in Life for Young and Old.* Some of the questions that might be discussed are: What age does each generation consider as *old?* Does the younger generation think a great deal about their own aging? Did the older generation think a great deal about that question when they were young? What does each generation think are the positives and the negatives of growing older? For both generations, what gives hope or meaning to your life? For both, what do you think of retirement communities i.e., what do you see as the positives and what the negatives? Discussion participants can add their own questions. Some meetings will be held at Edenwald in the Multipurpose Room and some at Goucher.
