Product description

Review

[T]his is a great book. The therapist who takes the time and energy to use these exercises as the author instructs should be rewarded with a more effective practice.-- (02/01/2015)

[B]right and engaging. [Borkin] draws in her reader much as she must do with her clients, creating a warmth and intimacy that make this book a pleasure to read.-- (05/01/2015)

Writing is a powerful method to help people get through difficult times. This is the first book that focuses on ways therapists can help their clients harness this powerful method.-- (08/01/2014)

An excellent tool for therapists and their clients. Susan Borkin explains precisely how journaling can aid the therapeutic process and offers up practical exercises for addressing a wide variety of problems. Highly recommended.-- (08/01/2014)

Psychotherapist Susan Borkin reveals how writing--simple, honest, moving, and direct, while also private and unedited--may be one of our best medicines, allowing us to meet self and other in deeper ways, resolve conflicts, ease stress and depression, and much more. From a solid research base to practical hints, stories, and examples, this book will change the lives of both clients and therapists.-- (08/01/2014)

Borkin masterfully presents us with the gift of her accumulated clinical discoveries about writing for psychological well-being. She takes us on a kaleidoscopic tour of the practicalities and possibilities of writing to deeply enrich, understand, and change our lives. Although written primarily for clinicians, both therapists and non-therapists alike will discover a feast of original and useful expressive writing ideas.-- (08/01/2014)

Borkin provides great case studies and research on the usefulness and healing power of writing . . . . [Journaling] has proven beneficial not only to [my clients] but also to myself, as I learn a great deal about the 'internal, hidden world' of the client. . . . Borkin does a good job lighting the way.-- (05/13/2014)

[P]rovides a review of the process of therapeutic journaling and the benefits from its use, but goes beyond. . .by providing therapists with clear steps for introducing journaling to psychotherapy clients and pairing that with a treatment plan. . . . Psychotherapists who would consider this approach need this book's clear direction on how to get the most from it.-- (08/01/2014) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
