Therapeutic journaling: Next steps
Therapeutic journaling is the intentional practice of writing to foster well-being, encourage insight and promote growth. It may be used as an adjunct to face-to-face therapy or as a continuation of self-care beyond the counselling contract. It incorporates a wide range of approaches:
This workshop follows on from 'therapeutic journaling: The basics' held earlier this year, but will be accessible and welcoming for those unable to attend the previous workshop. We will continue to explore:
• Key concepts and caveats in journal-writing.
• Different journal writing techniques.
• Practical journal-writing activities (with no pressure to share the content of our own writing).
• Applications for our clients and ourselves.
Six-hour CPD certificates will be issued
