Expressive Writing for Well-Being

A developing body of research shows that expressive writing calms the mind and emotions and increases feelings of happiness and wellbeing. Research has shown increasing evidence of the emotional and physical benefits of all types of expressive writing, for example: creative writing, poetry, journaling, keeping a diary. There is little doubt that writing has positive consequences and results in long term improvement in mood and health and that it increases the immune response.

For more information, see Expressive Writing information.

We meet on the second Wednesday of each month. For enquiries, please contact Marina Bielenky (phone 01453 753050, email Expressive Writing).
