"An art journal is a space for questions that may no have answers,

a place for thoughts that may otherwise not have a home, a safe container for emotions so that they do not have to be loose in the world"

In this workshop, we will explore the world of Creative Journaling, a process originally developed by art therapist Lucia Cappachone which combines journaling techniques with artmaking. Journaling allows people to clarify their thoughts and feelings and can serve as a problem-solving tool. Journaling about traumatic events helps one process them by fully exploring and releasing the emotions involved, and by engaging both hemispheres of the brain in the process, allowing the experience to become fully integrated. We will engage in creative artistic and expressive journaling exercises to explore and gain insight.

Be sure to bring a "journal" to work in. This can be a traditional bound book such as a blank lined journal, a blank drawing book, a hand made book, or an altered book. It can also be non-traditional such as a deck of cards or index cards. All other materials will be provided.

Objectives 1) Attendees will be able to list therapeutic benefits of writing and journaling.

Objectives 2) Attendees will be able to list three strategies for combining journaling and artmaking techniques to heighten therapeutic impact of journaling.

Snacks will be provided. Lunch is available from healthy, reasonably priced restaurants in the neighborhood.
