Elder Mediation: Maintain Your Voice and Your Choice

Due to circumstances, this event has been cancelled. Our apologies for any inconvenience.

Presenter: Vivian Kerenyi
Are you or your family experiencing conflict regarding an age-related issue? An elder mediator may be able to help resolve these concerns through informal discussion and consideration of everyone’s point of view – allowing families to make decisions together. Mediation may also help strengthen or improve relationships that have become strained. This workshop will discuss mediation as an option that allows you to voice your concerns and take an active role in resolving them.

Collaborative Gaming for Seniors and Families

Presenters: Sharon Sutherland, Rowan Meredith, and Darsey Meredith
Families playing games together can often result in arguments and hurt feelings. The problem is so common that Monopoly even set up a helpline to mediate family game disputes at Christmas! Fortunately, there are many games that actually build family relationships and prevent disputes!
 
Join Mediate BC’s mother and daughters team of Sharon, Rowan, and Darsey in learning a new game they helped create called Zombie Fight or Flight. It’s collaborative, easy-to-learn, quick-to-play, and suitable for family gatherings. It’s best for ages 8 years old and up, and you definitely don’t need to be a fan of zombie movies to enjoy the game!

Friday, February 17th
1:00pm – 3:00pm
