PD514 – Expressive Writing: Foundations of Practice

Instructor:  Linda Barnes, CJT   Sept. 21 – Nov. 15


The inaugural book in Kay Adams’ ten-volume expressive writing series articulates nine approaches to therapeutic writing that each represent the foundations of standards-based practice in the field. This visionary yet entirely pragmatic work offers perspectives and voices of eight master teachers on using therapeutic writing for developing emotional intelligence, assimilating and integrating acquired wisdom, and actualizing potential–key components for healing, growth, and change.  

PD Elective for CJF/CJT Trainees.  CEUs Available.
