About this book
Little has been written about the inter-related developmental issues for both parents and adult children as they re-create the family nest. In this ground-breaking book, well-known author and psychologist, Robyn Vickers-Willis writes about the importance of parents living consciously from midlife and beyond. Using candid interviews with others and her own personal experiences she provides a mirror for self-reflection. Drawing on current Australian and overseas research Robyn debunks many of the prevailing truths about navigating te empty nest and then with insight and sensitivity explores a variety of practical tools and excercises for increasing self-awareness and self-navigation at this significant stage of family life.
