Description

More than 100 million Americans are over the age of 50 today, and while research concludes we can grow and enhance our lives at every age, stereotypes about aging still plague our society, contributing to the boredom, isolation, depression, and decline we often see in older clients.

But don’t let the ominous perception of “aging” take control of your client’s life! In this recording, you’ll gain insight and practical tools to help older clients find fulfillment and truly understand that “age is just a number.” Andrea Brandt will provide you with mindfulness-based strategies to help your clients get unstuck from their past and embrace the future of possibilities. In addition to this, she will help guide you into asking the life-altering questions that your clients fear to face.

Watch this recording and take home strategies and techniques to use with your clients!
