Miscellaneous Resources

Wisdom of the Elders

  • Building on the success of 2015, we presented another Wisdom of the Elders panel at the 2016 conference. Co-host Sonny Ochs suggested that we record the session, so that it would be available for anyone in the community to view at their leisure. We would like to thank Graham Lindsey, who produced this year’s wonderful Estelle Klein Award video about Anne Lederman, and who stepped up and offered to film the Wisdom of the Elders session.
