Journaling Worshops

Self-Care For Caregivers and Adults with FOP: How Writing & Gratitude Can Keep You Grounded

Who: Individuals with FOP (over the age of 18), caregivers (parents, spouses/significant others, siblings) and bereaved family members 

What: In this 6-week class you will learn how to create a regular 5-minute writing habit that has the power to change your brain. We include science-based writing practices which incorporate the following topics:

  • How can you find gratitude even on the toughest of days?
  • How does self-care make you a better parent, friend or companion?
  • How can journal writing ground you?

You will have the opportunity to connect with other FOP community members, listen, share and be supported, all while learning easy practices that will improve your ability to cope. This popular class has for many participants been life-changing as they learn that it’s not only possible to take micro breaks—but it’s essential to their own well-being.

When: 6 Fridays, April 16 through May 21 at 10 am EDT/15:00 BST/7:30 pm IST

Where: All workshop sessions will be hosted on Zoom video conferencing and simultaneous translation** will be provided in the following languages: Arabic, Bengali, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Dutch, English, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Tamil and Vietnamese.

**Translation services and the Zoom video application can not be accessed at the same time on a single mobile device. If you're using a mobile device and want to access translation and see fellow attendees during a Zoom meeting, you will need a second mobile device or a computer to open translation services. With two mobile devices or a mobile device and a computer, you can participate in the Zoom meeting on one device and access written and audio translation on the other.

This workshop will be led by Pamela Alma Weymouth. Pamela is a writer, social worker and single mother of twin teens, one of whom has a rare medical condition. She is a champion for parents and patients of all ages. As founder of Mighty Kids Can, her mission is to help parents/caregivers find their voice, nurture themselves and become more empowered. She has been keeping a journal since she was seven years old, and she is sure this is the reason she still has a sense of humor.
