Karl Pillemer will be giving the 24th Distinguished Wilson Abernethy Lecture at the University of Toronto. This is a virtual event only.
Can our elders serve as “experts” on how to live our lives? To answer this question, Dr. Karl Pillemer, gerontologist and Professor of Human Development at Cornell University, decided to seek advice on how to live from the oldest Americans. In the Cornell Legacy Project, he surveyed over 2000 elders, asking them for their most important lessons for living – on topics like marriage, career, parenting, aging, regrets, happiness, and overcoming loss. In this talk, he highlights some of the key findings from the 15-year project, focusing on practical advice from our elders for living a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling life.

This virtual event examines broad themes of forgiveness and reconciliation in the context of Dr. Pillemer’s research on family estrangement. Registration information will be posted at https://www.spiritualrenewalcenter.com/
Dr. Karl Pillemer discovered that family rifts are surprisingly pervasive and often result in long-lasting emotional and physical distress. He will discuss the first national survey on estrangement, including in-depth interviews with hundreds of people who have achieved a reconciliation. He will address such questions as: How do rifts begin? What makes estrangement so painful? Why is it so often triggered by a single event? Are you ready to reconcile? How can you overcome past hurts to build a new future with a relative? Sponsored by Washington Metro OASIS.
