Fall 2023 Therapeutic Writing Group
for Trauma Survivors

Writing creates an opportunity to connect emotions and thoughts, and to process beliefs, identities, and events in a unique and creative way. Therapeutic writing in a supportive group environment can empower trauma survivors to connect with each other and with themselves. Sessions will focus on allowing participants control over their narratives and exploring ways of healing the impact of trauma. Participants will not be required or expected to share details of their trauma.

Sessions will consist of two 20-minute writing periods with discussions before and after.
Writing prompts will center themes of:

  • Safety

  • Embodiment

  • Honoring and Coping

  • Myths and Truths

  • Emotion Connection

  • Relationships to Self and Others

$50/session (self pay or can be billed to insurance as group therapy)

Please contact Carolyn Cruse at (217) 778-4134 ext 140 or email with questions or to schedule a group screening interview.
