Lost Children: Abortion, Miscarriage, Stillbirth, Adoption and Other Absent Children

Incidents of abortion, miscarriage, still birth and early childhood death are painfully common experiences in families. More children are lost through adoption, denial and other situations, unique to each family system.

Current social and political controversy aside, helping and healing professionals need positive and helpful tools to support women, men and families to acknowledge, grieve and move forward. Adults who come from a family where a child was lost in early years and even long-ago generations are often surprised to learn that they have been subtly impacted by this family loss. Many more mourn the children who never "were" -- the wished-for children they dreamed of but could not birth.

The methods of psychodrama and Family Constellations, both of which consider the family as a system and the social roles that we play within the system, offer routes to healing and comfort.

Psychodrama helps to identify losses and grieve with the help of role play, surplus reality and other powerful techniques. Family Constellations as developed by Bert Hellinger adds the important dimension of including the child in its rightful place in the family and relieves pain, guilt and exclusion in current and future generations.

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
