Writing therapy exists as a kind of expressive therapy. What is expressive therapy? Great question! This kind of therapy focuses on providing ways for a client to express his or her feelings freely in a safe environment. Expressive therapy includes a wide variety of creative therapies to assist individuals in focusing on the process instead of a final product. This therapy includes art therapy, dance therapy and music therapy as well as writing therapy. These forms of therapy aim to help individuals by allowing them to express their feelings with words on paper (or electronically by computer). Being able to express oneself through writing can be extremely therapeutic and aid in the healing process.
