Have you ever used your journal for ranting, raving, raging, and other less than socially acceptable emoting? It’s the perfect place to express those emotions! But did you know that you can do more than just express—you can move toward better managing your emotions?
Beth Jacobs is a psychologist and author of Writing for Emotional Balance. She has worked with clients for years integrating journal writing into her practice and her focus has been on working with emotions. Beth says: “After 25 years in the therapeutic writing field, I’m still convinced that emotions drive journals. Most of us write most of the time because our feelings are overwhelming, unintegrated, unclear, or just painful. We write from the basic drive of the human brain to express what we feel in language. But we can take it much further than that.”Read more about journal writing and emotional balance.
