  Write for Your Health
Journaling about personal feelings and experiences can help you be healthier, happier, and even smarter! In this workshop you'll learn to use reflective writing to gain personal insights and develop a greater sense of well-being. You can use these new skills to improve your own health, or practitioners can acquire new tools to work with their patients and clients.

We will explore the various elements of "expressive writing" and the extensive health benefits it provides. Then, with step-by-step instructions, you will try two methods: one developed by James W. Pennebaker to express uncomfortable experiences, and PRH Self-Analysis, a reflective writing method that focuses on positive experiences. You will build proficiency in using both methods by distinguishing between your thoughts, feelings, and memories – plus, identify three types of personal insight that result from reflective writing.
