Building Resilience and Managing Transitions in Mid to Later Life
‘The future is not something out there that we step into but ourselves as we choose to become.’
We are delighted to be offering Changing Gears in partnership with Business in the Community Ireland.
It is a six-week course designed to boost wellbeing and resilience.
Age & Opportunity is the national organisation that provides a range of opportunities for older people who want to get more involved in arts and culture, sport and physical activity, civic engagement and personal development. Our aim is to enable the best possible quality of life for us all as we age, where we are more active, more visible, more creative, more connected and more confident.
The programme will be delivered in person at the Carmelite Community Centre Whitefriar Street, Dublin and offers participants (aged 50+) time to:
Develop skills and techniques to build resilience and develop confidence in managing life-changes or transitions.
Reframe transitions in our lives as opportunities with positive options, challenging negative stereotypes about ageing.
The programme is structured so that participants have 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.
Session 1 & 2: Life Transitions (Up to Now)
Session 3 & 4: Building Resilience (Here and Now)
Session 5 & 6: Mapping the future (Where to from Here)
