Seminar Series and Support Groups

What’s complicating your life these days? Adjusting to life as a new parent? Wondering how to support your school-age child, or how to help your high schooler plan for college? Dealing with the possibilities and uncertainties of life as a young professional? Maybe you’re at a mid-life crossroads, wondering who you want to “be" and what you want to “do” in the next stage of life? Or perhaps you want to learn how to help an aging parent—or maintain your own well-being as you balance your professional and personal lives.

With more than 25 seminars, workshops, support groups, and events to choose from this spring, you’re likely to find the issues that matter most to you.
