Journaling began to capture the imagination of many people in the 1960's and '70's, especially among women. Since then, there have been numerous books about journal writing - how to do it, different types of writing, personal growth, grief work, gratitude journals, research on its benefits, and on and on. Many of these books were excellent and helpful.
This is the first book targeted specifically for therapists to use with clients to help with various disorders such as anxiety, depression, addiction and many others. As a journal writer for 45 years as well as a therapist, I love this book! It is engaging, easy to follow and adapt for my own writing or for clients. And it is not dry or academic. If you want references to research and other books, there's a long list in the back.
Although the targeted audience is therapists, it can also be useful for anyone who likes to journal and wants to expand the techniques they may want to use. If you are someone with a serious mental illness, it would be best to use this with the aid of a therapist.
