Wise Aging

Mona Fishbane, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist, Couples Therapist, and Author
Toby Glick, MS, School Psychologist and Psychotherapist with Extensive Experience in Leading Groups

The “Wise Aging” program, based on the book “Wise Aging’’ written by Rachel Cowan and Linda Thal, is designed to help us find new joy in life, make the most of our time, and grow in wisdom, resilience and spirit. To achieve our goals we will use the techniques of reflective discussions, Jewish text study, poetry, journaling, and mindfulness practice. This program offers social, emotional and spiritual insights to help us achieve a fulfilling and active older age – one that recognizes both the challenges and opportunities of growing older.

Topics include: relationships with adult children and spouses, cultivating well-being, developing nourishing friendships, forgiveness and reconciliation, living with loss, and creating a legacy. Required text: Wise Aging: Living with Joy, Resilience and Spirit by Rachel Cowan and Dr. Linda Thal
