MAKING CHANGES – NOT CHALLENGES presents a collaborative discussion of new approaches for handling common life-changing conditions. As agents of change, coaches meet the twists and turns of life in its various forms as they assist their clients in structuring their life and work transitions. Being informed about the interventions that are available in response to illness, aging and changing family structures enhances a coach’s ability to foster client awareness and support innovative transformation.

Our outstanding panelists include:

  • Harriette M. Steinberg, ESQ., is an engaging and powerful speaker. Recognizing the need to alleviate the adverse financial and emotional effect that conflicts have on families, she is passionate about using mediation and the newest conflict resolution process, Collaborative Practice, to support conflict resolution.
  • Beth Polner Abrahams, ESQ., concentrates her law practice in estate planning, elder law and is a respected expert in Special Needs Planning. She will present valuable information about Special Needs Trusts and other interventions.
