The second of the five-part series, titled "The Pickle in the Sandwich: Feeling Squeezed at Midlife," will be held on Wednesday, May 3, 2006, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. and will be presented by Karen Krefman, LMFT, and Michele Wolff, MSMFT.

Do you often feel "squeezed" – for time, for space for money? Do you struggle to juggle conflicting life demands and competing needs to your family, friends or career? You are not alone. Midlife is a stage of life when men and women often feel "sandwiched." Between parenting demands, caregiving for aging parents, re-negotiating a changing marriage and a host of additional stressors, you may find yourself feeling stressed or lost.

This seminar, presented by The Family Institute at Northwestern University, will address the challenging topic of how to find balance at midlife. They will provide perspectives on the emotional, mental and physical impacts of feeling squeezed at midlife. They also will share practical "how-to" techniques to manage the multiple stressors in your life and to discover a new sense of clarity at midlife.

Although the Midlife & Beyond Seminar Series is free, it is requested that registration be made by calling the Midwest Buddhist Temple at 312-943-7801 to ensure proper amount of handouts will be available.
