Writing Workshop: Family Gratitude – ROEN

0 Comment

The literature on gratitude indicates that it has a range of benefits for both the giver and the recipient. In this workshop, we will consider the ways in which each of us has experienced moments of gratitude. We will reflect on some of those moments, and we will write notes of gratitude to share with family and friends.

Duane Roen has been tracing his roots since his teenage years, building a database with more than 32,000 ancestors. He and his wife, Maureen Roen, have also been recording their family history since 1978 by writing more than 19,000 daily journal entries on their children and other family members. Combining his professional and personal interests, Duane worked with colleagues to establish courses on writing and recording family history at Arizona State University. He also is founding coordinator of the Project for Writing and Recording Family History in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts at ASU.
