The Canadian Education and Research Institute for Counselling (CERIC) invites you to attend a free documentary preview screening with other professional peers who have a stake in career development for older adults.
DATE AND TIME
Wednesday, November 30, 2016
3:45 PM – 5:30 PM EST
2 St Clair Avenue East, Suite 300
Toronto, Ontario M4T 2T5
The featured presenter is Dr Suzanne Cook whose CERIC-funded research project – Redirection: Work and Later Life Career Development – is culminating in a film and companion guide. The new documentary film is entitled ‘Redirection: Movers, Shakers and Shifters.’ It examines what later life looks like today and the pursuit of a new direction through a second (or third) career. The goal is for us to provide better services, resources and tools for the unprecedented large number of older adults currently in or entering this stage of life.
Dr Cook is a social gerontologist and Adjunct Professor at York University in the Department of Sociology and York’s Centre for Aging Research and Education.
Join CERIC to learn:
- What research tells us about the trend towards delayed retirement and expansion of working lives
- The diversity of paid work undertaken by those 50+ and their later life career needs
- Best practices for working with older adults on employment and career development issues
Additionally, learn about CERIC, its programs and services, and what we can do for you.
