A monthly virtual reading and writing club
I often get questions about books and other resources to recommend from people who identify as self-starters, life-long learners, and avid readers. In my own healing journey, reading and writing poems and stories were a fundamental resource for both escaping, re-imagining, pleasure, reflecting, and growth.
I later learned about bibliotherapy and my cathartic relationship with reading and writing began to make much more sense. Bibliotherapy is a creative arts therapy modality that involves storytelling or the reading of specific texts with the purpose of healing and is a major self-help healing strategy for many people. So, I decided to offer a space for healing through literature centering relationships, sex, healing trauma, and mental wellness.
This year's theme is Healing and each quarter will center a specific topic:
January thru March - Healing Trauma
April - June - Healing Relationships
July - September - Healing Sex
October - December - Healing Whole
There are no plans available.
DISCLAIMER: Although this space is hosted by a licensed mental health clinician, please be clear that this is a book club meeting and not group therapy. This is not intended to be a substitute for individual or group therapy but a space for holding literature, community, and discussion
