Thu, Jun 14, 2018, 7:00 PM (EDT)


Crisis can create difficulties and challenges. For some, these challenges may prove insurmountable while others find strength and resilience allows emergence. Still, others may grow -- developing new skills and insights as they work through life's challenges. In this session, in partnership with the Greenwich Commission on Aging, we explore ways that both resilience or growth can be nurtured.
