The Family Institute at Northwestern University and the Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer’s Disease Center at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine is presenting a “Midlife and Beyond Seminar Series” free and open to the public which will be sponsored by the Midwest Buddhist Temple.

presented by Michele Wolff, MSMFT

Thursday, Aug. 3, 2006, noon to 1:30 p.m. – “Rethinking Retirement: Renewing a Sense of Balance and Purpose in Your Relationships and Your Life” presented by Karen Krefman, LMFT, and Michele Wolff, MSMFT

The fourth of the five-part series, titled “Living after Loss of Your Parent,” will be held on Wednesday, July 12, 2006, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. and will be presented by Michele Wolff, MSMFT, a clinical staff member at The Family Institute Northwestern University.

Losing a parent is one of life’s most traumatic events. A loss of such significance takes its toll both mentally and physically – a roller coaster of emotions that may feel overwhelming and even frightening at times. Adult children are often left wondering how they can heal from such a devastating loss compounded by the worry about the well-being and longevity of the surviving parent.

This seminar, presented by The Family Institute at Northwestern University, will address the sensitive topic by exploring loss and the process of grieving and healing. Michele Wolff will discuss how you can travel the journey of mourning while still honoring the memory of your parent and balancing other life demands. She also will discuss practical techniques to help a surviving parent re-engage in life. This seminar will highlight how you can draw upon family, personal and spiritual resources during the bereavement process. They will provide a safe and supportive environment to explore how to heal after the loss of a parent.

Although the Midlife & Beyond Seminar Series is free, it is requested that registration be made by calling the Midwest Buddhist Temple at 312-943-7801 to ensure proper amount of handouts will be available. For further information either visit the temple’s Web site, or call the temple office at 312-943-7801.
