  • Families in Transition: Navigating Through Changing Currents

Presenter: Angelina Blasich, LMSW

In line with this year's theme , “Families in Transition” – how do we navigate our growing, changing, aging families? , Angelina’s workshop will focus precisely on change, and represents a terrific opportunity to come together with other parents to explore the ways in which our lives can be enriched and understood through engaging with the process of change and growth.

“Our family lives are filled with challenge and change: marriage/divorce, having children, blending families, children growing up and out, parents growing old and in, blended family breakups, new relationships, new jobs, new routines, new identities, new public spaces, and new definitions of self. Along with these changes come emotional and relational challenges, affecting each individual and the group dynamic in ways that can be difficult to navigate. We will start with a meditation, providing the space to bear witness to our changing lived experience. We will then discuss strategies for navigating these challenging spaces with compassion, willingness, and a healthy smattering of humor.”
