Anne Marie Marx, New York State Licensed Clinical Social Worker, will be teaching a 10-week workshop on Guided Autobiography (GAB) beginning Monday, January 21, 2013 and ending Monday, April 22, 2013. The class will meet for two hours on Monday evenings from 7:30--9:30 PM in Croton. The class size is limited to six participants.

The workshop provides structure for adults of any age who are interested in writing an autobiography. Each week members of the workshop, under the guidance of the GAB certified instructor, Anne Marie Marx, will explore a different life theme that has been influential in shaping their lives. Participants write two pages on each theme at home and bring their writing to share in a small group with others also sharing their stories.

The GAB course was developed by Dr. James Birren at the University of Southern California, refined at the University of California-Los Angeles, and has been taught worldwide, including Brazil, Canada, Europe, Japan, Korea, Singapore, South Africa, and Taiwan.

"In five decades of studying adult development and aging," Birren says, "I have found that writing about our life experiences and sharing them with others is one of the best ways we have of giving new meaning to our present lives by understanding the past more fully." The workshop is particularly helpful to people facing any major life transition, he adds.

The cost of the 10-week course is $350, plus a one-time $25 materials fee. Registration is available by emailing and leaving your name and phone number.

Only one space left for this 10 week course!
