"The Immigrant Within and Without" at the American Society of Group Psychotherapy and Psychodrama
Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, will present "The Immigrant Within and Without: Finding Your Way to Your True Home" as an all-day pre-conference workshop at the 2019 American Society of Group Psychotherapy and Psychodrama May 2-5 in Manchester, N.H.
In this workshop, participants will explore the haunting question of the immigrant: Where do I belong? This workshop will focus the systemic impact of immigration – in today’s immediate world and the long-ago immigration experiences of our ancestors. With the combination of psychodrama, Family Constellations and mindfulness, we learn how to respond to struggles of our clients as well as the hidden trauma that may affect our own lives today – personally, professionally and with our health and financial well being.

Professional training: Make Your Own Training: Identifying Needs In and Out of the Therapy Space
What’s your pleasure? Clients don’t always know what they need, which makes psychotherapy, coaching, teaching and other change-making activities extra challenging. We often end up asking “How was your week?” and our clients often end up by responding with the laundry list of happenings, reports, thoughts and musings.
In this interactive training workshop from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16, instructed by Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, we explore the many ways to support our people in identifying and expressing their needs more fully, which allow for the therapy, coaching or learning session to gain more richness and depth. At the same time, we practice identifying our own professional needs for the training content itself, noticing what we need to grow professionally – supervision on a client or type of client? Reducing the irritation with a client or kind of client? Struggling with an ethics question?
The training takes place at Liberty Place, 313 W. Liberty St., Lancaster, Pa.
Tuition is $85 before Nov. 10, $105 after. and includes six CE and psychodrama credits. Find more information and register here.
Blue Christmas: Who's Missing at Your Holiday Table?
For many people, the holiday season does not look like a picture-perfect Hallmark card. Far from it – stories abound with relationship stress, hurt and angry feelings within families, loneliness, the shattered aftermath of divorce and the sorrow of death.
The fact is that many people are missing at the holiday table – and often in our hearts as well.
If you are looking to ease the stress of the holiday season, we invite you to this interactive workshop from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Dec. 15 at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Lancaster, 538 W. Chestnut St., Lancaster, led by Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, who will guide the group with the process of Family Constellations.
Family Constellations, developed by German psychotherapist Bert Hellinger about 30 years ago, is a powerful healing approach that gently reveals the unconscious and sources of recurring patterns that keep us alone and disconnected. It is a collaborative activity, with participants welcome to participate at several levels: to simply observe, to assist as a “representative” or to present a concern to explore as a group. Throughout the experience, we will ask – how can we feel more connected to the ones we have lost or the ones who are estranged?
This program is free but you must register with the Unitarian Universalist Church of Lancaster here or by calling (717) 393-1733.
