Friday, May 1
from 9am-noon


So it's 2020—are your family relationships healthy today? Do you suffer from estrangements within your family that you want to heal? Is the status quo of family dynamics getting you down? Maybe you should write a family manifesto!

Join this 1/2 day program that will provide a roadmap to help you craft your own manifesto (or whatever you choose to call it).

This course will cover:

- a sample manifesto to help you understand structure, flow, and formatting options

- group discussions regarding "what if" scenarios you should prepare for

- a look at possible negative implications and unintended consequences to understand before you start

- lively discussion with strangers about your family issues without a therapist and/or social worker (although you may need one or both later)

This class meets in the Owl Hall on the main level of the Education Wing.

Please bring a notebook and pen to take notes.
