Elders & Eldering
Dr. Greg White will present a CAMFT session on “Elders and Eldering.” This presentation will be some part lecture and some part small group discussion with feedback to the whole audience on of issues related to Elders. He will focus on (1) Cultural meanings of Elders as holders of Wisdom, (2) Elders are not Seniors, (3) Qualities of Elders and Eldering, (4) Counseling Elders, (5) Elders as supports for clients, and (6) Psychotherapists as (sometimes) Elders. If possible, before you attend reflect on people you have known whom you think of as an “Elder” in some positive way. Feel free to share during the talk about your own experiences counseling “Elders.”
Greg White is both a clinical and social psychologist and directs the MA Counseling Psychology Program at National University’s Redding Center. His clinical practice combines Jungian, Cognitive, and Contemplative traditions. He co-founded the Redding Men’s Center which was active in the 1990s. His current, mythopoetically-oriented, men’s group just celebrated its 25th anniversary.
