Writing Your Life Story

For four-plus years Dr Thomas has taught in various Senior Centers and retirement homes a class on writing personal and family stories. These classes have provided a structure that seniors could use for personal growth, self-understanding, and tying up loose ends. Additionally, the resulting writing was a way to share family values and pass on to the younger generation the family’s history.

 

Women and Aging: Opportunities

Based on Dr. Thomas’ book, The Women We Become and the accompanying workbook of the same name, Dr. Thomas both leads classes and teaches future class leaders to facilitate groups on the topic.

 

Successful Grandparenting

Yes, these days, although being a grandparent is a noun that may describe you,  grandparenting is now a verb with lots to talk about, think about, and learn. Long distant grandparenting? Divorce issue grandparenting? Child care grandoparenting? Health Issues? Vacationing? Problem solving? Values? This class is different each time as the participant’s needs set the direction.
