Making the List: Writing & Healing Gains Significant Recognition

It feels like winning a Pulitzer Prize. James Pennebaker has included my book, Writing & Healing: A Mindful Guide for Cancer Survivors, in the recommended Reading List of his new book, Expressive Writing: Words that Heal.  To me, he is a hero, as the first psychologist to bring writing into the area of health research.


My book is with nineteen prominent titles. I am thrilled to have my book honored in this way.

The Healing Power of Writing

Prompting the Healing Power of Writing


For the next few months I will be talking about writing and healing as a guest blogger at I post there about every six weeks.


The folks at love my book and see it, as I do, as being all about healing.  It could be used by any group or person, but since I am a cancer survivor, I chose to offer it to this population.


The blogs focus on the Sessions in my book, Writing & Healing: A Mindful Guide for Cancer Survivors.  As well, they will include a short exercise.


Just posted is my second guest blog post, “Prompting the Healing Power of Writing” It can be found here.
