Strength for the sandwich generation; help to thrive while simultaneously caring for our kids and our aging parents.
Clinical psychologist Bertini (health and counseling, U. of Southern Maine, Portland) offers a perspective on the "sandwich generation," those like herself who find themselves being caregivers for both their children and their parents just as they may be dealing with their own midlife crises. Drawing on demographics, developmental stage theories, and case examples, she offers tips, reflection exercises, and resources for coping with and finding meaning in these multigenerational challenges.
