Why it Works
Connections: Creating What’s Next™ curriculum is based on a proven behavioral change model* where participants are provided a platform to develop the skill-sets required for successful and effective communication in expressing their desires and needs as they age or care for someone that is aging.
In creating clear communication of their desires and needs, participants feel motivated to be their best selves and also feel connected to the collective well-being of the group or organization.
Please take a moment to preview a part of the video. Participants use the workbook to apply the skills they learn from the video. In the end, they learn to live more engaged and vibrant lives.

*The behavior change technology used in Connections™ is based upon a proven methodology called “The Vibrational Change Theory™” developed by Phoenix Possibilities. The same technology has been used in a nationally acclaimed Stewards of Children program used in preventing child sexual abuse. The technology has been studied and validated by the Medical University of South Carolina and is currently being studied by the Centers for Disease and Control and Harvard School of Public Health. You can find the results from the Medical University of South Carolina study here.
