In the news, in case someone is interested.



A Novel Therapy, Using Writing, Shows Promise for PTSD
A comparatively quick treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder, in which a patient writes about traumatic experiences in five supervised 30-minute sessions, is as effective as the therapies most recommended by federal agencies, according to a study published on Wednesday.
The treatment, called written exposure therapy, involves asking clients to write down the thoughts and feelings that occurred during a traumatic event, and then speak with the therapist about the writing process. In later sessions, they are asked to write about how the event has affected their lives.

I have long thought that putting down on paper that what troubles you is a good release. The very fact of looking it straight in the eye and coming out better for it works. I don't know why is took so long to realize it works.
