voices in the family

When did we get so old?


Inspired by a New York Times article of the same name, written by Michele Willens, the conversation in Voices in the Family focuses on th mental preparedness (or lack thereof) for aging. For boomers, the “what, me, get old?” generation, denial of aging is an important and difficult issue to tackle. Dr. Gottlieb speaks with Dr. Robert Gould, a psychiatrist who wrote the influential text Transformations, about the mental component of aging: who grows, who doesn’t and why. We are also joined by the author of the New York Times article herself, Michelle Willens, as well as Rabbi Dayle Friedman, leader of local wisdom circles and author of the forthcoming book Jewish Wisdom for Growing Older: Finding Your Grit and Grace Beyond Midlife.
