The Transition Network

long island chapter TRANSITION PEER GROUPS (TPGs)

TPGs are small groups of women who meet on a regular basis to discuss topics that range from career transitions to changing family relationships to benefits and challenges of aging.  Members share personal perspective and listen as others express their views.  The intention is for women to share and learn from each other.  Members are encouraged to speak freely and listen with an open mind.  TPGs have a facilitator and a timekeeper and typically have some structure for the discussion.  While TPGs are meant to create a supportive environment, they are neither support nor therapy groups and cannot substitute for professional help in a crisis situation.
Discussion Groups (* = Open)

Have something to say?  Enjoy sharing your opinions, interests and concerns by contacting a group listed below that coincides with your availability to find out if an opening exists or if they have a wait list.  If that is not an option, contact Debbie Fox, Membership Services Committee Chair at to find out how new discussion groups are formed.  Perhaps you will gain new insights hearing someone else’s point of view or it could be the start of a beautiful friendship!
