Introduction to Journaling as a Self-Care Tool
Research indicates that engaging in a regular writing practice can increase our awareness, reduce stress, and even improve some markers for physical health. But where do you start? In this 2-hour interactive and introductory workshop participants learned tips and tools for how your journal can become one of your most trusted confidantes. No prior writing experience was needed and sharing always optional. Though our group is therapeutic, it does not, of course, substitute for therapy.
