Expressive Writing for Healing: Journal Your Way from Grief to Hope

We rated this book:


Grieving is lonely, and while it never truly ends, grief counselor and author Mary Potter Kenyon sensitively and compassionately recounts her painful passage through sorrow after the loss of her husband and other family members. This is a notebook-patterned paperback filled with entry-styled blank pages interspersed with the diary recordings of the author’s recollections of those traumatic times spent trying to assuage grievous pain. This inspiring story of personal attempts to deal with grief in times of bereavement brings recognition that we each have our own pattern of mourning, and while weeping is one form of comfort, the support of friends and family is another necessary bolster. Solace can be kindled to assist in this journey toward hope by maintaining a writing journal for the purpose of uttering current sentiments, pulling in past memories, reflecting on impressions, recording book excerpts, and including a collage of inner emotions. There is room to write thoughts within the book on those blank lined pages, each of which is head- or footnoted with a reflective quote. Expressive writing is a therapeutic path toward healing, as it leads to a deeper understanding of one’s self and circumstances. For those in need of comfort, this book serves as an excellent guide.
