Attachment in later life with Jeremy Holmes (lecture)
This lecture will be delivered via Zoom online.
In later life, do attachment principles still apply? Drawing on clinical, observational and personal experience, Jeremy will explore the psychodynamic ’tasks’ of the second half of life.
During this talk, Jeremy will touch on:
- The ‘reverse Oedipus’ and the challenge of letting go
- The evolutionary role of grandparents (literal and metaphorical) as culture-bearers
- What attachment research tells us about old age, adaptive and maladaptive
- Dante and Jung's map of pathways to graceful endings.
