Publisher’s Description: 

Grownupedness is a personal memoir, rich with the insight of Clarissa P. Green's decades-long career as a university professor and family therapist working with aging parents and their mid-life children. In finding that the search for authenticity and the desire to appear and act grown up was shared among those families that she counselled, Clarissa brings to life her stories, insights and personal family experiences—making her deep understanding of aging and family life available to all families or individuals struggling with age and family relationships. Using her own similar family struggles and sharing the deeply personal process of her family's history and future interlocking through time, Clarissa explores when and how grownupedness emerges and evolves, what threatens or cobbles it, and what it looks and sounds like in action over time.
