Located at the New York Open Center*

Major life changes are often accompanied by experiences of loss, anxiety as well as excitement, sometimes all at once, often creating unexpected confusion, and sometimes paralyzing fear. This workshop provides practical tools and sophisticated approaches that you can integrate into your coaching, counseling or therapeutic practice with clients who are facing significant life changes.

By offering clear diagnostic frameworks and useful approaches, we will explore how external change can affect thoughts and feelings, upend confidence and hamper the ability to make effective decisions. We will offer some ways to assist your clients to move forward through life transitions using a range of skills.
