THE GIFT OF DISAPPOINTMENT
A Workshop for Women on Aging, Disappointment, and Hope
by Denise Caldwell

Are you a mature woman who has experienced much in life, including difficulty and disappointments, and wonders how to find meaning in the midst of it? Denise will be addressing this issue and facilitating times of individual, personal reflection. With her signature humour and warmth, she will share some insights while provoking a different, and hopefully helpful, way of approaching this experience of disappointment.
“I have come to believe that as we age, there can be seasons of disappointment which can catch us by surprise, and that within these often dismaying experiences, there exists a gift. This understanding comes from many years of listening to the stories of women’s lives, and from my own personal awareness of what it is like to be getting older. I have come to understand that there are possibilities for hope, growth, and even comfort, in very unexpected places. Join us as we consider together this particular aspect of aging, and remember together where our hope lies.”  – Denise Caldwell
For I will give you the treasures of darkness, and the riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the
Lord your God, who calls you by name.   Isaiah 45:3

Faith and Mental Health

As a Christian Psychologist, I have witnessed a number of misconceptions about the nature and treatment of mental health issues among fellow Christians. I am aware that many of my clients, friends and acquaintances do not feel comfortable disclosing their mental health issues to other Christians, often due to a fear of being judged for their struggles.
