Synopsis

Using Your Words to HealA holistic approach to recovering from trauma. Creative writing is increasingly becoming a go-to method for trauma recovery. There is great power in the written word, and even more so when those words are our own. Journaling provides a cathartic release of emotions because it allows us to not only process past experiences but also reflect on how we're feeling in the present moment. In this way, writing is one of the most easily accessible self-care practices.



Give voice to what has been silenced. Healing from trauma can be a slow and painful process, especially for sexual trauma survivors, who are often shamed into keeping their experience to themselves. This companion journal to Jen Cross's book Writing Ourselves Whole is a space to put the pain on a page, and in doing so, release the hold it has on us and restore our bodies and minds.



Creativity as a tool for change. Trauma and violence leave a distinct mark on our lives, one that is not easily erased. Writing on our own or with a community or group can be an extremely transformative process for creating change both within ourselves and socially. It encourages discussions about mental and emotional health that lead to finding more approaches to healing.



Jen Cross has worked with sexual trauma survivors for over fifteen years and founded an organization that is devoted to creating spaces for survivors to write and talk about their experiences. In this self-help journal, you will find:







A 60-day guided journey to healing from your experience

Sixteen writing exercises that gently prompt writers deeper into their experiences and into renewal

Follow-up readings, additional exercises, and suggested uses for your writing



If you've worked through books such as Start Where You Are, Healing the Wounded Heart, and Present, Not Perfect then Our Words Restore Us will provide further support and restoration for your healing process.

Jen is the author of Writing Ourselves Whole: Using the Power of Your Own Creativity to Recover and Heal from Sexual Trauma (Mango, 2017); her fiction and creative nonfiction have appeared in over 50 anthologies and periodicals, including Nobody Passes, The Healing Art of Writing 2010, Sinister Wisdom, Matador Review, 14 Hills, and Best Sex Writing 2008. She has a novella, Night Hands, under contract with The Massachusetts Review. She's been awarded residencies at Hedgebrook and the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, and she holds an MFA in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University. Jen Cross is a bookseller and writing instructor at The Book Passage. Visit her website at writingourselveswhole.org
