(Sarasota-Manatee, Florida) Lifelong Learning Academy (LLA) presents “Transitions Workshop: Navigating Through Challenging Times,” a one-day workshop about coping with life’s transitions, led by certified life coach and retired psychotherapist Louise Gallagher, Friday, March 6, 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., at Selby Auditorium at the University of South Florida, Sarasota-Manatee, 8350 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota. General admission is $75 and includes lunch and snacks. One registrant will win a certificate for a one-hour coaching session with Gallagher.

In “Life Transitions: Navigating Through Challenging Times,” Louise Gallagher explores strategies to positively manage marriage, divorce, retirement, job loss, the death of a loved one, and other significant life transitions.
“Such dramatic changes can often be stressful,” says Gallagher. “But if we take the right attitude, they can also be positive steps towards a more manageable and fulfilling life. This workshop will explore ways to make the transitions smoother, and show participants how to view these changes as the beginning of something great instead of just the end of something.”
Topics to be covered in the workshop include:
- The relationship between transitions, resiliency and adaptation.
- Coping strategies, tips and cues for successfully handling transitions.
- Why stress is important and how it affects the mind and body.
Gallagher is a California-licensed psychotherapist and certified life coach. She also teaches “Go for It: Getting What You Want out of Life” at Lifelong Learning Academy at the University of South Florida, Sarasota-Manatee.
