Transition Peer Groups

Transition Peer Groups (TPGs) (TPGs) are small groups who meet to discuss topics from career transitions to changing family relationships to the benefits and challenges of aging. Each group selects its own topics and shares group facilitation and guidance. TTN provides resources to help these groups get started and flourish. There is always an opportunity for a formation of new peer groups in a different geographic location and/ or around specific topics. If you are interested in joining or starting a TPG, please contact Barbara O'Sullivan at

TRANSITION PEER GROUP - Life Animated - submitted by Sylvia Moen

Ten members of the Life Animated peer group met in July and discussed the topic of "decision making", led by Chris DiPietro. Several of us felt we were slower in making decisions, that it's harder now. When we were younger, it seemed easier to adapt and change. Multiple people continue to analyze information for decisions including evaluating pros and cons or looking at worst case. Even when one plans, stuff happens and one needs to adjust.
We also talked about decision making as related to what to do with our stuff and decisions related to family members - parents and/or children.
Next meeting:
August 8. Highland Park Library, Community Room. 10:15 AM-12:15 PM. Topic: Self-Care, led by Nancy. This topic includes self-care in all sorts of aspects: physical, emotional, social, spiritual, personal, space, financial, others. 

Please contact Eleni Skevas at if you are interested in joining this group.
