ACTIVE LEARNING ACTIVITY #13: MIDLIFE QUESTIONING
For this activity you should interview a middle-aged adult, using the following questions:
- Have you ever experienced something you would describe as a midlife crisis? Was age the major factor involved, or were there causes unrelated to age?
- Tell me about one or more life regrets that you have experienced. Did the regret center on romantic or family life, education or career, or another aspect of life?
- If you have experienced lost opportunities, how do you feel about them now?
Record the answers and compare them with research presented in the readings. Did the interviewee report experiencing a midlife crisis? If so, how did he/she define it? If the interviewee described experiencing life regrets, how did he/she interpret these regrets? Was he/she able to disengage from his/her regrets, or did some of his/her disappointments remain unresolved?
Formatting guidelines: use 12-point Times New Roman font, 1-inch margins, single-spaced, and follow the APA style for in-text citations.
