Talking Through Differences in Adult Families
Wednesday, October 23, 2019, 1:00 PM until 2:30 PM
Little Falls Library
5501 Massachusetts Avenue
Bethesda, MD 20816
"Talking Through Differences in Adult Families" with Carolyn Miller Parr and Sig Cohen, authors of Love's Way: Living Peacefully with Your Family as Your Parents Age.
Sig, a former Foreign Service officer, and Carolyn, a retired judge, have been mediating together for more than 15 years. Based upon their clients' true stories (identifying details changed), and their own experiences as family caregivers, they will reveal traps to avoid and techniques that heal families as both generations navigate the shoals of parental aging: role-reversal, safety vs. autonomy, sibling competition, planning and transparency, care partnerships, grief and the pain of inevitable loss. Carolyn and Sig can be reached at their blog, www.toughconversation.net. Love's Way is available wherever books are sold. The presentation will be followed by a book sale and signing.
