0 ratings

This workshop offers practical tools and techniques to support you to write about challenging material safely, and to develop a sustainable writing practice.

It features several brief reflective exercises which together form the start of a writing plan which you can return to and build on as you need it.

Recommended time to complete the workshop, including the exercises is around 90 minutes.

Topics covered include:

  • Creating a safe space to write
  • Writing rituals and containers
  • Assessing distress levels
  • Grounding techniques and where to find support
