Breakdowns & Breakthroughs: Understanding Men in Midlife

A talk about the difficulties many men face as they move into 'second adulthood'

We hear a lot about middle-aged men going through a ‘midlife crisis’, but what does this life-stage really mean without the crass jokes and clichés? Looking beyond the stereotypes, we can be guided by theories and observations from the fields of biology, gender studies, folklore and psychology, and then create a useful narrative about a man’s psychosocial movement at the midpoint of his life-story.

This talk will aim to take a multi-dimensional view of ‘midlife transition’, pull together some crucial ideas about why middle-age can be so problematically challenging for men, and discuss differing male responses to the task of entering second adulthood.

Jim Holloway (BA, Dip IIP, MBACP Accred) has been involved in men’s groups for 20 years and runs an independent practice in Cambridge as an Adlerian/ Integrative therapist & supervisor, specialising in anger management for adults. For this lecture he will draw on his experience over the last few years of running a groupwork course for men called ‘Moving Through Midlife Changes’, which was the subject of a recent article in Therapy Today.
