Green Typewriter

Trauma tears apart. It damages people, relationships, and societies. It changes the lives of those affected, fundamentally. Afterwards, life must be rebuilt, the self re-created.

Through writing, this re-creation process can begin.

The Write Your Self method helps people reclaim their voices and stories after experiencing trauma.

Research and trauma therapeutic work show that after trauma, we need space to put what we've experienced into words, and we need companionship in the process. We need help to piece our stories and our lives back together.

The Write Your Self method can help you find and use your voice in the creation of your ongoing life, and as a tool for self-empowerment.

The 8 steps of the writing process are:

  1. A Room of One's Own

  2. Begin Writing

  3. Self-Care

  4. The Writing Body

  5. Genres

  6. Topics

  7. Creating Wholeness

  8. Expressing the Wordless

Through this process, writers receive the support, guidance, and feedback they need to write about their chosen topics, and create their own sustainable writing routines.
