Changeways for the Older Adult is a group designed to help adults aged 60+ combat stress, anxiety and depression. The program was developed using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. You will learn skills to help challenge negative and distorted thinking in order to create a healthy lifestyle and build a good support network.
During this workshop, you will learn ways to boost your mood and overcome feelings of stress and anxiety. Group facilitators will teach you mindfulness techniques and how to incorporate relaxation into your life, while also talking about the importance of nutrition, exercise and self-care.
Participants will create weekly goals to practice in between classes and learn how to make sustainable changes to better their lives. As a group, we will discuss the changes that come with aging, life after retirement, and being a parent to adult children.
October 11 to November 29, 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm
Please note that this workshop has a cost of $5 to cover printed materials. If you request to have the materials emailed to you to so that you can print them yourself, the $5 fee will be waived. The printed material must be brought to class.
