Therapist and author Kathleen Adams, M.A. teaches her trademark ten-step “quick and easy” approach to using reflective writing as a therapeutic process.
Adams created this method while working with dissociative disorders patients at a national treatment center in order to provide sexual abuse survivors and dissociative clients with ways to maximize structure, balance, and permission while minimizing overstimulation and overwhelming feeling.
In a well-designed workbook format, The Way of the Journal teaches 10 fundamental journal‐keeping skills that are helpful for those in treatment for a variety of emotional difficulties, and that are of particular benefit to people with dissociative diagnoses. It includes a resources chapter that includes journal therapy interventions for common clinical situations.
