Wellness and Writing Connections edited by John Frank Evans, EdD (broadcast 3-19-2012) An informative and intriguing collection of essays, this book offers an engaging introduction to a field of study that includes the disciplines of writing, psychology, medicine, counseling and education. Beginning with two essays that review some of the research underpinnings for writing to heal, the collection goes on to include discussions of how writing poetry can aid in resolving painful issues, the values to be found in distance writing or in writing memoirs and more. Included also is an essay that offers tools and exercises for keeping a personal Healing Notebook. This is a book with something to offer for most everyone even if they have never written anything more than a grocery list. Find out more at Wellness and Writing.
