Lee will give verbal portraits of individuals living and who did live in the Final Interlude. All the cases presented will be of aging analysands and/or analysts who have asked for help and assistance in The Final Interlude.
An attempt to bridge research and analytical psychology, the presentation is based upon the work of Erik Erikson and his wife Joan Erikson in their publication up-dating the stages of life, The Life Cycle Completed. The admonition is not “prepare or die,” but “prepare, participate, and program the final days.”
