* Memoir and Life-writing Workshop for Foster, Adoptive & Kinship Families

June 22, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Deborah Gold, university creative writing professor and author of Counting Down: A Memoir of Foster Parenting and Beyond, will conduct an introductory life-writing workshop, focusing on the experiences of foster and adoptive parents, kinship caregivers and professionals who raise and work with children and youth in care. Written exploration can help caregivers and professionals process the triumphs, losses and challenging moments involved. While much of the workshop will be interactive, a replicable ‘photo album’ format and process instructions will enable particpants to ‘re-teach’ the workshop in other settings. Reflective writing as a means of self-care and personal growth will also be discussed. The $18 fee includes a copy of Ms. Gold’s book Counting Down to each participant.
