Upcoming Therapeutic Writing Workshop
The therapeutic writing workshops run for four consecutive weekly sessions and are each two hours in duration. It is recommended that participants are at least 20 years of age.
Therapeutic Writing - Milestones
In the Milestones therapeutic writing workshop, we focus on one or two important things in your life that you want to look at closer. Examples are (though not limited to): a milestone, grief for the loss of a loved one, the birth of a child, surviving sexual harassment or assault, marriage, moving on from an unhappy situation, reflection of life, existential ponderings, and many others. In this workshop, we work through writing, primarily through writing exercises. The last session we will create a (surprise) special keepsake, a representation of the exploration in this workshop.

Therapeutic writing can be a gateway for emotional healing. It is one effective way to work through important issues in life, whether they are happening currently or whether they are issues from the past. Therapeutic writing can even involve thoughts and imaginings about the future. The main goal in therapeutic writing is to take something that circulates in the mind and put it out into a safe, alternate place, starting with pen and paper. The act of releasing thoughts, worries or experiences from your mind helps make room in it for new and additional experiences. It also allows you the opportunity to look at your thoughts with a different perspective, from an alternative angle, and if you choose, with feedback from a therapist and other supportive therapeutic writing participants.
In therapeutic writing workshops, the facilitator, Cori Lambert, guides the participants with suggestions for short therapeutic written pieces. She then invites voluntary sharing of pieces with the group, guides feedback and provides support for each workshop participant. Workshops are small, intimate and confidential. Safety and support is maintained and guided by Cori.
