Quarter-life crisis is a term you may not be familiar with but it’s used to describe a very real phenomenon we’re seeing more and more. Initially coined as an analogy with mid-life crisis, the term ‘failure to launch’ refers to the time from teens to the thirties in which an individual becomes fearful of their own lives brought on by the stress of becoming an adult.
Confusion about what steps to take in order to transition properly into adulthood, as well as feeling lost and lonely, are all symptoms of a quarter-life crisis. Studies show that choosing a career path and other rites of passage into adulthood can be cause for young people to experience overwhelming stress and anxiety. So much so that they become frozen in time, unable to make a move towards the future.
Breathe Life Healing Center’s Failure to Launch Program is designed specifically to deal with the socially, financially and spiritually stranded young adult. Working from Tom Rath’s StrengthFinder 2.0 workbook, the program identifies the natural, innate talents that have gone untapped. The outcomes are used to develop a goal implementation plan that directs next steps such as additional schooling and certifications, testing, career choices and job interviewing skills. ??Each client in this program is appointed a case manager who acts like a life-coach and accountability partner. In addition to the implementation plan, clients participate in Breathe’s Life Skills and Personal Enhancement workshops, therapeutic appointments, and spiritual recovery practices.
