Writing Workshop: Humor and Laughter in Our Lives – ROEN

0 Comment

Research indicates that getting angry or upset can suppress our immune systems, but finding humor in stressful situations and laughing at them can boost our immune systems, reduce stress, and even regulate blood pressure (Northwestern Medicine). Fortunately, life offers us humor in many forms and at many moments. In this workshop, we will share some of the humor that each of us has experienced. We will discuss some of that humor; then we will write about it and share what we have written.

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.
