'The Next Chapter' addresses depression and anxiety in supportive and creative ways.
Bronx, New York (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
After the age of 55, many people are experiencing life changes with job, family and health. Many are having difficulty adjusting to these changes, and their sense of wellbeing is being diminished.
The 2008 Great Recession hurt the nation, economically and emotionally. Those who were planning to retire or retire earlier have had to readjust their plans for retirement. This has caused feelings of depression, resentment and loss.
According to Healthline.com, 80% of the people who have symptoms of clinical depression are not receiving any specific treatment. This number is expected to grow in the following years. In America, both depression and anxiety are on the rise, especially among members of the Baby Boomer Generation.
The coming Golden Years are quickly deteriorating into Desperate Years. Many adults have had trouble adjusting to such quick and sudden change, and are being challenged in new and different ways. It is overwhelming.
As fall and winter approach, Patricia Brody, one of New York City’s finest psychoanalytically trained therapists, is pleased to announce the expansion of ‘The Next Chapter’, a new approach to counseling developed specifically for The Baby Boomer Generation and other people facing significant shifts in their lives.
