Express Yourself: The Benefits of Expressive Writing In-Person

Dr. James Pennebaker, an American social psychologist and psychology professor at the University of Texas developed an expressive writing prompt to identify the potential health benefits of writing about emotional upheaval and stressful or traumatic events. Pennebaker's research has been replicated many times with positive outcomes, and is referred to as the Pennebaker Paradigm. Some of the health benefits that have been nlinked to expressive writing, include better sleep habit, improved mental health, and a reduction in blood pressure. 

In this session, we will:

  • Explore and understand the impact expressive writing has on our physical and emotional well-being
  • Practice expressive writing 
  • Discuss the writing experience 

Note: Please have a pen and paper nearby for the writing portion 

** A Zoom link will be sent to you 2-hours before the discussion.**
