A Conversation on Aging:
Working With Baby Boomers

November 1-2, 2017, Arlington, VA 


Join Barbara Braham and Chris Wahl at the Hendry House in Arlington, Virginia for a unique two-day workshop on coaching baby boomers through transitions. This session is geared to coaches who are working with baby boomer clients who are dealing with the major transition we call 'aging.' This course is also for coaches who are anticipating or in this aging transition themselves.

Workshop Description 

This workshop will give you the opportunity to explore what aging means to you through dialogue, poetry, and small group exercises. You will participate in a process designed to clarify your intentions for your next chapter. Your personal learning from this experience can be applied to working with baby boomers. We will explore the significant topics that typically emerge as people age, such as relevancy, connectedness, contribution, creativity, vibrancy, and spirituality. Growing older is an experience rich in contrasts including joy and despair, optimism and pessimism, letting go and holding on. You will have the opportunity to reflect on and engage with these tensions within yourself.


The design of the two days provides a structure within which we, and the community, can be responsive to your needs, questions, and concerns related to your own aging and the aging of those around you. Come join us for what promises to be an exceptionally rich experience of making meaning of aging within a welcoming learning community.
