Not everyone can come to my classes to write through trauma in a supportive group setting, so I decided when I started teaching that I would provide my core in-class resources on my site. I believe writing is an excellent tool in the self-care kit. I’ve put these posts in an order that you can use as an in-home syllabus. Consider working with one post per week, and complementing it with prompts from the linked page (see below).
While I believe the safest way to start an expressive writing practice for the purpose of accessing trauma is in a group setting, I also feel certain that there is benefit in writing on your own. Sometimes you just need time and a little privacy to let go of what is not serving you (or record how you’ve grown).
I hope these pieces aid you on your healing quest. I will update this list periodically, so bookmark this post and check in. And feel free to ask questions/make requests.
As always, when you are writing:
Epistle: A Writing Exercise (I always recommend starting with a letter to yourself outlining your writing goals)
