HOD-858 Adult Transitions

4 semester credits
Students study the patterns of adult transitions in multi-disciplinary ways considering the resulting transformation and personal growth.  Adult transitions entail endings brought about by loss, crisis, trauma, existential questions, and much more. Endings imply letting go of parts of our lives due to internal or environmental factors. Grieving and fear are common emotions in the early stages of transitions before one enters into liminal or neutral spaces of reflection and exploration. The last phase of transitions often entail healing, new affirmation and renewal. Transitions can happen at any age and can be linked to loss of relationships, job, moves, recovery, health scares, aging, and much more.
Delivery Method: Online
