Writing Through Transitions, 2020:
Change is a part of life and brings questions, challenges and the opportunity to create deeper meaning. This is particularly true when cancer is the change that demands our attention. Regardless of where you are in the process, whether you are patient, caregiver, or both, there is a structured writing process that can safely serve as a beacon and guide as you navigate through life transitions. Wisdom, meaning, strength and resilience are often positive outcomes and learning the process is a skill that can transfer to future changes and challenges including those of these times. This class is led by Deborah Ross, LPC and CJT (Certified Journal Therapist) and co-author of, "Your Brain on Ink" and has completed training in Transitions Writing. She incorporates research on journal writing, and the neuroscience of well-being in her teaching so that participants learn the art and science of writing. A workbook is required for this class. Please email Leia Francisco at https://www.leiafrancisco.com to purchase the workbook before the first class.
