Course Description

Wellness and writing are connected in ways we are only beginning to understand. Writing has been proven to boost emotional, physical, and spiritual health. It helps people in coping with stressful situations, improves self-esteem, and aids in overcoming obstacles. Writing supports a lowered heart rate, improves blood glucose management, and provides a boost to the immune system. This course presents an overview of the research on the connection between writing and wellness and teaches the Write To Be Well method—four steps to support you in getting well, being well, and staying well, whether you are dealing with stress, a life change, or a chronic or acute health condition or you simply want to be more proactive with your health. Writing to heal is even for people who don’t like to write, as it is for your eyes only, free-form, without attention to being grammatically correct or following any particular style. There will be lectures, plus questions and hands-on writing exercises. | Lecture (plus questions); Active participation; Writing
