Writing Routes : A Resource Handbook of Therapeutic Writing, Paperback / softback Book

Writing Routes : A Resource Handbook of Therapeutic Writing Paperback / softback

Edited by Gillie Bolton, Victoria Field, Kate Thompson

Part of the Writing for Therapy or Personal Development series

Paperback / softback

Description

The use of creative writing as a route to personal or professional development is a powerful therapeutic tool, yet often the most difficult part is knowing how and where to begin.

The experiences of others, and the strategies and approaches they have used in their own writing, can provide tried-and-tested models for practice, and 'ways in' that facilitators might wish to recommend to others.

Writing Routes is an essential roadmap for anybody setting out on the journey of self-discovery through words.

This diverse collection of short pieces introduce and demonstrate many different ways of getting into and thinking about creative writing for personal or professional development.

Seventy contributors from a variety of different backgrounds and circumstances explain how they came to write a particular piece and why, how they found ways of transforming their experience into writing, and how it was beneficial to them.

Their writing ranges widely, from journal entries and stream of consciousness to autobiography, poetry, fiction and drama, and the pieces are organised by theme and genre for ease of navigation, designed to be 'dipped into' as and when they are needed.

This rich and varied collection will provide writing practitioners, counsellors and other related professionals with ideas and techniques to share with their clients, and is a useful resource that individuals who write for their own personal and professional development will return to again and again.
