How to Navigate Life Passages
A workshop with Dr. Elaine Handley & Melissa Pilkey, LMHC
This workshop will help you develop coping strategies for your new life situation whether it be: marriage, divorce, illness, moving, retirement, an empty nest, widowhood, injury, new job—or something else that has reconfigured your life.
Through a series of lively, interactive discussions and activities, we will use exercises and writing as a way to connect with each other, become more in touch with our own needs and share resources and strategies to further build resilience as we live through dramatic changes in our lives.
