Description
"A collection of essays and creative writing encouragements for sexual trauma survivors who want to risk writing a different story. Each short chapter offers encouragement, experience, and exercises. Sections focus on writing as a transformative practice, embodying our story, how to write trauma without retraumatization, writing joy and desire, and more."--Amazon.
"The very act of writing and journaling can be deeply healing for all of us -- when you find language for the stories that are locked inside, you can change your life. You begin to make yourself whole again. For survivors of trauma and sexual assault, it can be one of the most powerful ways to recover. Author Jen Cross shares the riveting story of her personal journey in the hopes of helping others access this curative creativity. Statistics show that, shockingly, every 98 seconds, someone in the United States is sexually assaulted. Using her own hard-won wisdom, Jen Cross's Writing Ourselves Whole is a one-of-a-kind tool for transformation. Each short chapter offers encouragement, experience, instructions on creating community and writing circles, as well as exercises that move you forward in your healing process. Sections focus on writing as a practice for transformation, embodying our story, how to write trauma, loss, and pain without re-traumatization, the power of writing joy and desire, and more." -- back cover.
