Writing for Resiliency: Using Expressive Writing to Heal

Learn how to restore and heal the self from the ‘slings and arrows of outrageous fortune’ with the curative powers of expressive writing. The healing principles informing radical acceptance, self-compassion and mindfulness converge in the use of emotion focused writing when applied correctly.

This workshop will give you the methods and understanding that support the use of expressive writing to heal (physically and psychologically,) manage stress and problem solve. We will engage in several exercises to become familiar with the expressive writing experience.
