Transform Your Health: Write to Heal helps you connect deeply with your own capacity to heal. [Click to Tweet] During each 2-hour meeting of this 6-week, online workshop, a progression of restorative writing approaches support your health and well-being. You discover that you can manage your responses to stressful events and upheavals, and move forward positively from them.
Journaling has always been an important part of my well-being and personal growth, but I had become stuck. Nancy’s Transform Your Health: Write to Heal program intrigued me as a way to get past this.
I heartily recommend Transform Your Health: Write to Heal for anyone, and especially for those feeling stuck in life problems or past traumas. It was a small investment to gain new tools that continue to benefit my life even now.

- No writing experience or aspirations needed!
- Your writing remains private, as do any events that you write about.
- You are invited to share what you learn and discover through your writing.
- The exchange of support with others strengthens the experience.
Over three decades of research demonstrate the power of expressive writing to positively impact emotional, social, behavioral and physical well-being. It’s greatest appeal is that it is a method with strong scientific evidence behind it.
~ James W. Pennebaker & Joshua M. Smyth, Opening Up by Writing it Down.
These six writing modes help you connect with your inner healing voice:
Expressive writing: Helps you move forward from a personal, private emotional upheaval or crisis.
Transactional writing: Allows you to take care of unfinished business, conveying your feelings, expectations and intentions for yourself and others.
Poetic writing: Uses narrative structure and metaphor to tell your story.
Affirmative Writing: Centers your focus on your best qualities, and how you want to live your life in the future.
Legacy writing: Teaches you to write for others about your values, major life lessons, turning points and epiphanies.
Mindful writing: Focuses attention on the present, encouraging awareness of self and of surroundings, and strengthening awareness, attention, acceptance, affection, appreciation, and affirmation.

Since being trained in 2015 by author, writing clinician and educator John Evans in Leading Others in Writing for Health, I have facilitated Writing for Well-Being and Writing for Resilience workshops with hundreds of participants. I am currently completing Dr. Evans’ facilitator certification training for the 6-week Transform Your Health: Write to Heal workshop.
