“We write before knowing what to say and how to say it, and in order to find out, if possible.”
Therapeutic writing is now increasingly used in a number of settings to facilitate self-expression, self-awareness, and as an aid to gain clarity in times of confusion. This introductory workshop will offer the opportunity to explore therapeutic writing in your work with clients, and for your own ongoing reflective practice.
This workshop will be suitable for those working with clients 18-25 years and adults, and/or practitioners interested in using therapeutic writing as a means to enhance their supervision or self-reflective practices.
Artistry, spelling, and style are not important. Just bring yourself, a pen and some paper!
“If a story is in you, it has got to come out.”
