Statistics identify that the population is aging at an accelerated rate. Researchers and healthcare practitioners alike, agree that helping these populations increase their experience of individual autonomy, mental/emotional viability, and personal fulfillment will contribute greatly to the overall health and well-being of the individuals and the communities within which they reside.

Brief Description: Statistics identify that the population is aging at an accelerated rate. Researchers and healthcare practitioners alike, agree that helping these populations increase their experience of individual autonomy, mental/emotional viability, and personal fulfillment will contribute greatly to the overall health and well-being of the individuals and the communities within which they reside.

This purpose of this study is to explore the effects of implementing a meaningful practice of writing and writing development on the experience of aging.

We are looking for individuals age 65 and up to participate in an 8-week course on writing and writing development. Participants will first participate in a short introductory webinar and then be guided to choose their own topic and desired style of writing; whether autobiographical, creative, or other form of written record. Over the course of the remaining 7 week timeframe, participants will write and share their experiences, insights, and if desired, written endeavors.

Data will be gathered via questionnaires and surveys, prior to course participation, midway, upon completion, and three months post completion.

This study will take place entirely online within LiveLifeResources Learning Management System (LifeWiseU), and as such, does not require any travel. This study does require the use of technology to participate.
