  • About WellWriting WellWriting Workshops WellWriting is a form of expressive writing used to promote wellness and self-improvement after past stress and trauma. Writing as a health tool goes by several names: journaling, expressive writing, therapeutic writing and emotive writing. A workshop to teach this technique to be used as a health tool can be either four, six, or eight hours long. In addition, the workshop can be tailored to the needs of the participants. For instance, it can be used by professionals who work with traumatized clients and patients to prevent or recover from vicarious traumatization that many professionals encounter in their work.

  • Domestic violence affects all of us – in our bodies, our emotions, our relationships and our children. To effectively tackle the impact of domestic violence, it must be addressed as a serious family problem – not as a “women’s” problem. This means using a multi-agency approach that often involves complex partnerships across child welfare and mental health agencies, medical, law enforcement, and criminal justice organizations. Unfortunately, most agencies that provide domestic violence services tend to operate as separate systems with only informal agreements to share information. When agencies do attempt to collaborate, poorly coordinated services and inefficient communication are common as each agency has its own goals and wanted outcomes.

  • Domestic violence is not over when the victim is safe and out of harm’s way. It’s not over until justice has been served. Even then, it’s not over. It’s not over until the victim is safe, justice has been served, and the victim is well. Consider these facts: Abuse, especially repetitive abuse, leaves a lasting “impression” on the health, well-being, and post-abuse functioning of the victim. This impact lingers long after the bruises fade, the bones mend, and the abuse is over. Victims of violence seek healthcare more often than non-victims. The severity of victimization is a powerful predictor of the healthcare costs generated by these victims. Most healthcare visits by victims of domestic violence are not domestic violence patients presenting with injuries, but rather medical problems that seemingly are not related to current or past injuries.

  • Start your writing practice by getting yourself seated with pen and paper or in front of a computer. Fifteen minutes a day, three times a week will serve well, though you should feel free to write as often as you wish. Make yourself comfortable and set the clock for 15 to 20 minutes. Then write as fast as you can without regard for style, spelling, or punctuation. Write. Don't think. Keep the words flowing by imagining them coming from deep inside you or out of the universe. Remember that your expressive writing will become easier and more natural through regular practice and use. Here are some of the benefits reported by people who have started a writing practice:

  • SUCCESS BEGINS WITHIN By Monique Rider Incorporating bodybuilding into my lifestyle has been one of the best decisions I ever made. My early childhood was marred by the trauma of sexual abuse. Although these memories were repressed until just a few years ago, I spent most of my life suffering from all of the classical symptoms of abuse: low self-esteem, low self-confidence, phobias, obsessive-compulsive behavior, and depression.

  • Many patients would be horrified to even think of challenging their doctors’ diagnoses or prescribed treatments. These patients believe that they should not question what their doctor tells them. They assume that whatever their doctor says must be true. The doctor seems god-like and all-knowing. Asking too many questions or challenging the doctor in any way is perceived as useless at best and runs the risk of provoking the wrath of someone who has a great deal of power. The myth that doctors should not be questioned is common and often keeps patients from getting the best health outcomes. Survivors of domestic violence who believe this myth have extra challenges because many doctors do not understand the connection between past violence and current seemingly unrelated medical problems.

  • Did you know that psychological battering is bad for your health? Victims and survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV)--also referred to as domestic violence, have long known that they are never the same after the abuse. The impact of that abuse lingers on and results in poor health for many. Until the last few years, little research focused on the health consequences of IPV—especially those stemming from non-injury abuse. What research did exist, for the most part, focused on the consequences of injuries past physical abuse. Ignored were the health consequences of long-term psychological abuse. In the year 2000, Dr.

  • The Writing Practice Prescription: Thinking Outside the Pill Box with Pen and Paper

  • Stress and trauma come in all types of packages, including good ones. Consider the plight of a woman who bumped into an old college sweetheart, married him, and then experienced the agony of abuse so profound that it ended their relationship. When it was all over, college lover boy plunged into a torrid affair and never looked back. Not so with the now-single woman. She felt like a disoriented failure. What went wrong? And now what? A journal and pen turned out to be her savior. As she struggled to put her life back together she wrote in her journal whenever she could. She wrote: • To find out how her marriage had gone wrong. • To understand the person she had now become. • Most of all, to learn how to rebuild her life and jumpstart her career
