Dr. Pennebaker has been a profound inspiration to my work since the late 80's and has always been a generous resource as I have studied writing for healing, to obtain a PhD and MS with my focus on using programmed writing and poetry for managing trauma. This new book is an elegant addition to his body of work. It is sharp, concise, consistent with the science and research he has done, and adds another dimension of "how to's" with the contributions of John Evans. The book is accessible enough to recommend to clients to use on their own, and academic enough to recommend to students or care providers who are new to the work of using writing for healing. As an Author, Educator, and Licensed and Registered Expressive Art Therapist I am delighted to add this new book to my library and once again appreciate the elegant blend of science and art of Jamie's work that allows writing as a self-regulating methodology for healing to continue to rise above the "noise" in today's treatment-de-jour marketplace.
