Especially in handling the challenge of getting older in an employment-based society, competences which have been achieved in ones biographical life become more and more important for improving ones self-esteem and the capability of self-determined decision-making.

At this point the method 'Empowerment by medial staging' has its starting point, which was developed and tested in the frame of the EQUAL Project 'U-Turn'.
