This unique workbook is designed to improve your resilience and well-being through poetry, self-reflective writing and practical activities. Written by poetry therapist, counsellor and life coach Charmaine Pollard, the book will be your expert guide as you journey towards a more fulfilling future.
Writing can play a powerful role in our journeys of self-discovery. Therapeutic writing is about using the written word to promote healing and growth. By writing and reflecting on our own words, we can gain a deeper understanding of ourselves. In turn, we can prepare to make meaningful change within our lives. Writing for Resilience: Finding the Courage to Bounce Back harnesses the power of writing to help boost self-awareness and strengthen resilience.
The book began its life during a poetry therapy group that Charmaine ran for women survivors of trauma in Central London. Together the group decided that they wanted to offer hope to those who had been through challenging circumstances and introduce other people to the fantastic resource that is writing as therapy. Now, this vision has become a reality in the shape of a comprehensive workbook packed with activities, strategies and inspiration.
"I am delighted to endorse this book by Charmaine Pollard. As soon as I started reading it I felt that I was in safe hands. For many years, she has brought her skills, knowledge and personal qualities to groups, empowering people to find the confidence and resilience to lead more fulfilling lives. This book will enable many more to experience the power of the techniques she has developed.”
