Write Your Way Out Of Sorrow: A Therapeutic Writing Group Treatment Manual For Adults With Depression
MetadataShow full item record
Since Ancient Greece, creative writing and the art of story telling have been linked to cathartic expression, insight, self-exploration and human healing, modern psychotherapeutic practice often shares a similar focus. This thesis explores in greater depth how and why creative writing might function as a therapeutic practice and looks at if and/or how therapeutic writing differs from “therapeutic talking”. Based on the findings of the literature surveyed, a therapeutic writing group manual for mitigating depression is designed. Limitations of both the literature review and the group design are then discussed.
