At the Ronald McDonald House we observe the stress endured by families every day. Standing by a child during a period of extreme illness or injury is an emotional rollercoaster often seeming too extreme to bear. We want to support not only the families we serve but also those in our community who are attempting to manage the stress and grief related to a child’s illness or passing.
Research has shown that keeping a journal is one way to do this. Journaling allows the writer to document experiences and express emotions. We want to foster a family’s use of this outlet. The Charlottesville Ronald McDonald House, in collaboration with the Junior League of Charlottesville, is proud to sponsor the first ever “Writing for Resilience” workshop with Linda J. Kobert.
Linda is a writer, editor and former nurse, and is adept at facilitating this type of workshop. The event is free and open to the public, but space is limited and registration is required to secure a spot. All attendees will receive a journal to use during and after the workshop.
The event is scheduled for February 13th from 6 to 8 pm at the Gordon Avenue Library. The snow date is February 27th.
