Bernie White is a founding trustee of the Third Age Foundation - helping older people to thrive. He is passionate about the human spirit and the creative impulse - at every age.
Bernie’s presentation will focus on the six dimensions of positive psychology - positivity, engagement, relationship, meaning & contribution, achievement and vitality - and how positive psychology can, beyond care and support, help older people to flourish in their third age. Bernie places a high value on humour, curiosity, creativity and compassion.
Bernie has four adult children and lives with his wife in Karori, Wellington. He is passionate about theatre, the outdoors, travel and music.
