Age & Opportunity’s Changing Gears course, which focuses on managing transitions in mid to later life, is being offered for free this November in Cork, Athlone, Galway and Carrick-on-Shannon.
Designed to build well being and resilience, it is a four-session in-person course funded by the HSE.
Changing Gears offers participants (aged 50+) time to:
- Develop skills and techniques to build resilience and confidence in managing life-changes or transitions.
- Reframe transitions in their lives as opportunities with positive options, challenging negative stereotypes about ageing.
The programme allows participants an opportunity to reflect on challenges they have experienced in the past and life lessons they have learned. In this way strategies for building resilience and managing change draw on personal experience to create a more positive and fulfilling future.
Sessions cover: Life Transitions (Up to Now), Building Resilience (Here and Now) and Mapping the future (Where to from Here).
