Writing to Heal
Recently, I read a blog titled Writing and Trauma-An Exercise in Healing by Sherry Davis Zander on the website writing4effect.com . She writes a fantastic blog for writers and just so happens the information in this blog applies to everyone. Sherry Zander shares the heartbreaking story of her friends Jason and Kim and how writing about the tragedy of losing their baby has helped them through the grieving process.
I invite you to check out the site for more information, but include in this message other great sites posted in her blog where you can learn more about writing through trauma and grief.
Some of the sites that articulated it best are as follows:
- Kaiser Permanente — Health Systems post — Healing Through the Written Word.
- Read My Story blog — Healing Through Writing.
- One Year of Writing and Healing blog — the entire blog
- Cinco Vidas blog — Can We Find Healing Through Writing?
Healing is a process and one must allow time for the mind and heart to work through it. There are many methods, people, and organizations to help a person through this process, but ultimately it is up to you to investigate options and pick and choose what feels comfortable to you along the road to recovery.
