The Journal Therapy Diploma Course kicks off by discussing therapeutic journaling as a specific tool for professional coaches and counsellors to use with clients, and what personal qualities make for an effective journal therapist.
This leads onto a general overview of journal therapy, with a definition of the process and an examination into the meaning behind ‘expressive writing’ and how journaling in this way works to support emotional wellbeing.
The Journal Therapy Course introduces you to the structures and support methods that are used in journal therapy and the tools and environment needed for effective, therapeutic journaling. You’ll also be provided with some powerful journaling prompts to get you started, before being exposed to some of the most popular and effective techniques used in therapeutic journaling. These include list making, writing letters, capturing moments, biographical statements, dialogue and sprints.
You’ll explore the scientific links between journaling and healing and how to effectively use journaling in your own healing or as an aid when working with clients. You’ll learn the specifics of using journaling in grief therapy, trauma recovery, and in the management of stress, anxiety and depression. You’ll also look at what dreams are and how they can be used in therapeutic journaling - learning how to start and use a dream journal.
Journaling can enhance your creativity, prompting you to create new ways of expressing and discovering yourself. The Journal Therapy Diploma Course explains the differences and similarities between creative and therapeutic journaling and the many benefits of creative journaling and the different forms it takes. The course also looks at how journaling can be used as a tool for career and life coaches – highlighting ways to use therapeutic journaling for career advancement and exploring new career options.
Journaling can benefit everyone and anyone. The Journal Therapy Diploma Course examines the different types of journaling that can be useful depending on your needs and even the kind of person you are.
