Where did you last encounter ageism? How do you know if you have internalized stereotypes that may be disempowering you? Discover what ageism is and how it has distorted our view of aging, making it something to fear rather than a lifelong process. Share examples of behaviors and attitudes in your own world that reflect ageism.

OF 0004.53 Baby Boomers on the Threshold: Managing the Transition into Aging

There’s no denying the demographic data — as baby boomers are moving into the “older” or “aging” category, more and more are staying there for 20, 30, or more years. Moving through transitions related to aging — role, status, physical ability, relationships, spirituality — can present challenges and opportunities. Using change consultant William Bridge’s “transition model,” we’ll explore different ways baby boomers respond to steps in the process: endings, neutral zone, and beginnings. Assess whether you’re a denialist, realist, or enthusiast and explore ways to move closer to acceptance and even enthusiasm.
