In this Zoom workshop, we'll explore various ways of journaling to cope with tough times.
We'll practice using our journals to vent, name and face fears,
clear our minds, explore our thinking, notice what's going well,
set goals, and more.

You're welcome to join whether or not you're already journaling!

Feedback from past participants:

"This workshop went beyond my expectations because we went a lot more in-depth than I expected by exploring many different avenues of journaling. I really liked the mix of personal writing and reflection and group discussion, which allowed us to begin exploring our own emotions about different topics without feeling pressured to share with the group.”

"I really liked being able to hear everyone’s experiences with the different tasks and thought that that added to understanding and working with the different prompts."

"I appreciated the variety of prompts/tools that were used and introduced throughout the workshop. The prompts made me realize that you don’t just have to journal when something big has happened but that you can free-write regularly, whether it’s about a particular prompt/question or just whatever flows out of the pen in the moment."

"Part of the learning process with the workshop was that there is no right or wrong with journaling: just write what you feel without censoring it or making it perfect. Breaking down that perfectionist tendency even in a personal journal is something that the workshop really made me want to work on (and sort of forced me to as well)."

"The workshop made me realize that free-writing is a good way to exercise our minds and creativity. It will certainly impact the way I view journaling and its importance."
