Blue Holidays: Finding Strength & Connection for Ourselves and Others

For many people, the holiday season does not look like a picture-perfect Hallmark card. Far from it stories abound with relationship stress, hurt and angry feelings within families, loneliness, stresses of money and time, the shattered aftermath of divorce and the sorrow of death.

The fact is that many people are missing at the holiday table and often in our hearts. As professionals who are also humans, we may have our own struggles which can feel exacerbated as we listen to and work with our clients, students and others who are also struggling.

In this interactive training workshop, instructed by Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, we draw on the Blue Christmas movement popularized by the clergy which, by the way, is apart from the Elvis Presley song! we explore how to respond to our stressed clients while also attending to the realities of our own busy lives and personal needs.

We will use a variety of experiential methods, including psychodrama, Family Constellations and mindfulness during this workshop. Family Constellations, developed by German psychotherapist Bert Hellinger about 30 years ago, is a powerful healing approach that gently reveals the unconscious and sources of recurring patterns that keep us alone and disconnected.

From 9 a.m.to 4 p.m. Six credits for social workers, marriage and therapists and licensed professional counselors, plus psychodrama hours.

Retrieving the Treasure – Returning to Serve, Heal, and Transform the Wasteland

Our 2018 series, which has used myth and the Journey of the Heroine/Hero as a model for healing and transforming ourselves and our world, culminates in this final three-day workshop, which focuses on the Return of the Heroine/Hero.

During phase three, we again draw upon action methods and expressive arts, including the Sociometric Wheel, to help us explore:
• How the Heroine/Hero, who heard the Call and travelled the Journey to retrieve the Treasure, must Return home with those transformational gifts;
• How Global Citizens and Social Artists can nurture community, age consciously, share resources, and actively support the empowerment of all beings;
• The power of joining with kindred spirits in a compassionate community of support, inspiration, encouragement, and celebration; and
• A ‘winter’ of self-care needed to ponder and integrate transformational experience.

Participants will have the opportunity to:
• Identify and reflect upon the gifts they’ve received on the Journey – their Treasure;
• Interact compassionately with others in understanding how they might individually and collectively explore what it means to be Global Citizens and Social Artists;
• Access roles that can deepen their understanding of and experience with action methods and their use; and
• Reflect on how their learning might be incorporated personally and/or applied professionally after the workshop.

Though helpful, it is not necessary to have attended the previous two events. Indeed, as multifaceted beings, in one area of our life, we may be hearing a Call; in another, we may be experiencing the Journey; and in a further area, may be striving to integrate and apply new learning – the Return. The focus of this workshop is on the Return, but the overall heroine/hero’s journey remains the context and will be incorporated into the workshop.

Time: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. each day
ABE Hours: 18
