Strengthening Your Social Network
Wednesday, May 11 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm| Free
How do you meet people in the Washington DC area? Especially when you are not working and don’t have children in school? What do you do if your current friends leave town or are not able to remain your friend? It is particularly necessary to find new friends during transitions such as moving to a new area or becoming single. And right now, the nation is coming out of isolation from the pandemic.
Learn strategies to strengthen your social network. Dale Brown, who led a study group for Iona Senior Services and directs The Social Connection Project, will offer her insight and lead a discussion on:
*What gets in the way of finding friends?
*Which activities lead to friendship and connection?
*What makes a good friend?
*How do you deepen your friendships?
*How can you exchange favors and help each other more?
If you have strategies to suggest, come prepared to share.
Dale Brown is a retired federal administrator who has written five books. She teaches classes in social connection and led a study group on the subject for Iona Senior Services. She also writes poetry and enjoys relaxing walks in nature and through the beautiful city streets of Washington DC.
