   Expectation Hangover:
Overcoming Disappointment in Work, Love, and Life 
   Friday, October 3
12 p.m. (PT)/2 p.m. (Central)/3 p.m. (ET)
 A Live & Online Broadcast
For Beyond 50's "Personal Growth" talks, listen to an interview with Christine Hassler. She'll talk about how to leverage dissappointment, teaching her step-by-step guide for learning from it, rather than just attempting to get rid of it, get over it, or wallowing in misery.  Her multi-dimensional approach includes a range of tools and techniques for recovering from Expectation Hangovers on the emotional, mental, behavioral, and spiritual level.  Rather than just saying that things happen for reason, Hassler offers a practical road map for navigating the challenging terrain from Expectation Hangovers to the inspiration and growth that is an inherent part of transforming them.

Betty Halbreich: I'll Drink to That
For Beyond 50's "History" talks, listen to an interview with Betty Halbreich.  A true original, she is eighty-six years old and the longtime head of Solutions personal shopping service at Bergdorf Goodman for forty years.  Halbreich is an integral part of the fashion world.  Clients came to her to be dressed for funerals, weddings, award shows, and more.  She even worked with costume designers on Hollywood films like "Hannah and Her Sisters" and television shows as "Sex & The City."  Meticulous, impeccable, hardworking, elegant and very funny, Halbrich is never afraid to tell it to her clients straight.  She won't sell something just to sell it.  In fact, if an outfit or purse is too expensive, she'll dissuade you from buying it.  As Halbreich says, "There are two things nobody wants to face: their closet and their mirror."  She helps women do both, every day.

Off the Leash:
A Year at the Dog Park
For Beyond 50's "Personal Growth" talks, listen to an interview with Matthew Gilbert.  He'll talk about the dog park subculture and, in particular, the strange, wonderful, neurotic, and eccentric dog park people who gather daily at Amory Park, overlooking Boston.  It was a reluctant journey for him into the park subculture, and the first-time dog owner of a Yellow Lab named Toby.  In the presence of dogs chasing each other, humping, and stealing each other's toys, people are less controlled than in their more civilized lives.  Their feelings surface faster, unedited.  The dog owners are off leash, too.  But Gilbert shows how Amory is the home of enduring friendships, crushes, and love connections.  Meeting daily, a dog group can resemble group therapy, "the Office," a contra dance, a book club, a fencing match, and its more poignant, church.

Autism Breakthrough
For Beyond 50's "Medical Care" talks, listen to an interview with Raun Kaufman.  As a boy, he was diagnosed as severely autistic with an IQ of below 30 and destined to spend his life in an institution.  Years later, Raun graduated with a degree in Biomedical Ethics from Brown University (in photo at left) and has become a passionate and articulate autism expert and educator with no trace of his former condition.  He'll talk about his parents helped him to completely recover from Autism within three years through their revolutionary Son-Rise Program.  Avoiding the techniques of behavior modification, they understood how repetitive behavior patterns give autistic children an illusion of control — autistic children deal with sensory overload by shutting out their environments.  You'll learn about the principles involved that has helped thousands of families worldwide.  Raun regards Autism as a social relational disorder that is misunderstood and will talk about practical strategies that can help.
