Sharon of KRON Channel 4 speaks with AgeSong co-founder and licensed psychotherapist, Dr Nader Shabahangi and Paula Hertel about the concept of the “internal narrative” and how it applies to AgeSong.
How can we change our perception about aging? This is a big part of the foundation of AgeSong. AgeSong is trying to shift that perception to a more positive and empowering concept. We want to change that story where we tell ourselves that aging is about decline. At AgeSong, residents can rewrite their story; instead of a life review they can create a story for themselves that has a future to it. The therapists working within AgeSong can assist elders with changing their internal narratives.
Aging can really be full of joy. Changing the internal narrative can assist with this. It is life long learning, we keep learning and growing.
