Writing and Healing
In this course, students evaluate theoretical and practical aspects of written expression as it relates to healing. Students analyze foundational concepts of healing through the lens of contemporary creative literature. Students apply these concepts to their writing practice through journaling processes, written therapeutic strategies, and poetic techniques aimed at cultivating self-awareness and personal growth. Through a course-long inquiry into the concept of "healing," students will learn to articulate how their writing processes enhance their writerly identities and develop a practical set of therapeutic, expressive techniques for everyday use.
