Writing a journal is not just about keeping a record of daily events - journal writing provides a unique therapeutic opportunity for personal and professional development. Kate Thompson guides the reader through developing journal writing as a self-sustaining, reflective tool that can be used in countless situations: for teachers to bring learning journals to life, for therapists as a complement or alternative to talking therapy, for health and social care professionals wanting to embark on reflective practice or for anyone engaged in personal or professional development.

Therapeutic Journal Writing includes advice on facilitating a therapeutic journal writing group, proposed clinical applications, practical techniques, useful journal prompts, exercises and case vignettes. This clear guide to the basics of journaling and its development as a therapeutic medium will be a valuable handbook for therapists, health and social care practitioners, teachers, life coaches, writing facilitators and anyone seeking personal development in themselves or their clients.
