Aging is a challenge for all and also an opportunity to look more deeply at our own attitudes, feelings, and experiences.
How do we accept and even enjoy or bodies and our lives while living in a culture that demands an ideal body and eternal youth?
In this didactic and experiential workshop we explore the dichotomy of the realities of aging and the social constructed expectations of how we should age with an eye towards developing new and positive perspectives.
-- This workshop will provide an opportunity to identify individual feeling about the aging process.
-- Participants will be able to identify the larger cultural forces that effect thinking and feelings about aging.
-- Participants have the opportunity to become more comfortable about aging by understanding both the personal and cultural roots of their discomfort about aging.
-- The above, in turn, will aid in listening for client’s problematic reactions to aging.
Teaching methods will include live, in-person, didactic and experiential. Presentation to include guided imagery.
