S.A.G.E. is a monthly seminar program that presented by Julie Chochovski, offering a supportive, interactive learning experience for older people in the wider Melbourne community.
Non-denominational in nature and delivery, S.A.G.E. aims to provide psychological tools for coping with problems commonly associated with ageing. In particular, S.A.G.E. is designed to prevent everyday problems from converting into serious conditions like clinical anxiety and depression. The supportive atmosphere enjoyed by people regularly attending S.A.G.E. is another benefit of the program.
The S.A.G.E seminars attract so many older people, and I’m not surprised considering the important topics they discuss, all of which help older people to age well.Noeline Brown

SAGE SUMMARIES 2017
SAGE SUMMARIES 2016
SAGE is all about growing old positively, focusing on opportunities and challenges rather than what we don’t have or have missed out on.
The aim of SAGE is to encourage people over 55 to learn psychological insights to help them age more effectively and enjoyably. Many people are in flight from the prospect of growing old. Sooner or later, it has to be faced that growing older (getting beyond 50) is an important vital intelligence.
Psychologically GOOD AGEING depends on: Strategies to cope with the big stresses of the post-50 years. Reshaping the meaning of life when the old meaning starts to corrode. Dealing with the fears that flit through these years. Living well, with and without your fantasy relationship. Knowing the books to read, the music to listen to.
