Question Description


Good afternoon

Please see below........


Scenario: Max

Max is a 48-year-old white male who has worked in the field of finance for the past 22 years. He has recently been promoted and now has many more responsibilities than he previously did. While he is happy about the promotion, it means he is working longer hours, and often has to work on weekends as well. Max and his wife Jenny have 2 children, ages 10 and 12. Because of Max’s work schedule, Jenny often bears the brunt of the child rearing responsibilities. Max feels guilty about this, but is unsure how to change this as he wants to be successful in his career. Recently, Max and Jenny have begun fighting more as she feels he isn’t around as much as she needs him to be, and she also feels that he is not meeting her needs emotionally. She also claims that Max is often defensive and critical, and insults her ability to cook and clean. Since Max feels pressure related to work, his marriage, and his parenting responsibilities, he has begun drinking more in the evenings and on the weekends when he isn’t doing work. This has begun to take a toll on his marriage, and the family as a whole.

There are various components of generativity in middle adulthood that have been
described in the course book. In this case, Broderick and Blewitt (2015) begin by noting that
generativity comprises two primary components that are desire and accomplishment. While
desire comprises of wanting to become creative, giving, and productive, accomplishment
involves the feeling that one is indeed giving, creative, and productive. On the same note, the
course book differentiates between the two by concluding that generative desire is
characteristic of young adults while the accomplishment component is characteristic of
middle adults.
Generative accomplishment is highly applicable to the provided case study involving
Max- a 48-year old father of two who has been in the field of finance for 22 years and who
recently received a promotion. Max’s marriage is on the balance as disagreements regarding
his commitment to the family and particularly the emotional satisfaction of ...
