In the article the authors suggest that there is a need for "life transition" courses for women who are interested in understanding how to improve their health and well-being. The actual midlife crisis starts in order to establish the suggested changes needed to create a healthy life style. The study describes the midlife crisis process for woman as a life transition that must occur. I personally agree with both authors that a midlife crisis is not just an episode but the body’s way of reconnecting with is social advancements. For example a woman who is raised as if she was a catholic nun will more than likely experience a midlife crisis were she breaks the pattern to evolve into what is consider social acceptable in today’s time. Although I do not believe this study could stand alone. If I was to research the relation between a necessary midlife crisis in order to develop socially, I would have to obtain multiple resources. Despite my personal belief that this information seems to be presented in a non-biased credible manner I would need to collaborate with different source in order to establish fully credibility. Although I do believe this article would be helpful in researching a midlife crisis.
