We are very pleased to announce the launch of the Conscious Aging Facilitator’s Program. The program content was developed over four years then codified into an 8-session workshop series and field tested in 2012 and 2013. It has been successfully and effectively conducted across a broad range of settings, including senior centers, retirement and assisted living communities, churches, universities, social service agencies, community groups, private practitioner groups, and health care facilities.
Our field testers were psychologists, social workers, nurses, MFTs, ministers, community group leaders, trainers, coaches, community volunteers, and gerontologists. They suggested that IONS make this important program available as widely as possible and at a reasonable price. We listened and have created the high value, affordable facilitator training program you find described here.
Our aim over the next few years is to expand the program delivery options. For example, we are collaborating with potential program partners to create a Conscious Aging distance learning program and a certificate program. We will keep you apprised of these efforts as they evolve.
We hope you find the Conscious Aging Facilitator’s Program useful and practical. Please let us know how effective this program was in supporting your important work with elders. May grace and blessings abound in our shared work.
