Wednesday May 23 6-7:30 p.m. UCR Palm Desert Center 75-080 Frank Sinatra Drive Does our sense of “time left” influence our hopes and dreams? To what extent do we experience our time left as “limited” or “expanded”? As we enter the 50’s and beyond our hopes, dreams and fears of who we would like to become and who we are afraid of becoming (our hoped-for and feared possible selves) motivate our activities and behavior. Several definitions of what it means to age successfully will be presented, including the biological and psychological aspects of aging. Can personal development be promoted by the enriched nature of the settings in which people live? Question and answer segment will follow the presentation.
