Friends are one of life’s treasures. They bring out the best in you, make you laugh, and help create memorable experiences that can last a lifetime. True friends forge a foundation of well-being serving as boosters, buffers, and believers. And like a “bridge over troubled waters,” friends form a supportive structure as mentors, allies, and guides. Despite these and other positive effects, many of us may get caught in a friendship gap as we change jobs, move, accelerate careers, go through a family shift, retire, or seek to redefine ourselves. Participants will explore the qualities and characteristics of friendship, how to cultivate new friends, reconnect with old friends who have drifted away, and deepen current friendships. This interactive and upbeat program combines self-reflection, guided discussion, and friendship-building strategies for real life application.
