Journal the Year 2023 - Jump in on the next month!
It's All About the Monday's! We're gathering one Monday a Month to Capture a Years Worth of Memories & Wisdom!
It's THE GIFT to give yourself!
Do you need accountability and support while maintaining your privacy? Then this is the group for you! Therapeutic writing groups talk about the PROCESS of writing without having to read your actual writing out loud!
You can make journaling a life-long habit in just 12 sessions a year!
Join us for one live meeting every month in 2023 and record a years worth of memories and wisdom!
The group will meet for 90 minutes at the beginning (ish) of each month. (The schedule is posted below)
Jen will guide you through her favorite journaling technique - the Month End Review. This technique is inspired by an exercise in Journal to the Self created by Kay Adams, but I've added a playful twist by creating a 3 step-writing process and an expressive arts activity.
It starts out with what feels like a big old HOT mess each month and then turns into a beautiful piece of art!
In addition to the Month End Review, you will learn NEW journaling techniques every month to add onto or enhance your journal practice.
BONUS: I will also teach you my 8 -step journal practice, THE PLAY PLAN, to use before you start any new project! It's my secret weapon to overcome fear and supercharge your to-do list! And it only takes 15 minutes to do!
Jen Taylor is a licensed psychotherapist, a certified Journal to the Self Instructor and a Registered Play Therapist -Supervisor but this group is all for self-care and fun!

This is a non-clinical psychoeducational support group. While the results may feel therapuetic, this is not a replacement or substitution for mental health services.
The group will meet for 90 minutes at the beginning (ish) of each month.

What to Measure and Qualitative Data
A note About Reflective Sentences
Absolutely not! This group is for personal growth. You do not need any credentials, licenses or anything else in order to participate. I've had children as young as ten join our groups! This group is not therapy and is not a substitute for therapy. If you have a history of trauma or other mental health concerns, please let your therapist know that you are participating in this group.
A video with the instructions is always available within the course for you to complete the process independently. You can continue to share your comments about the process or your reflections for the month in the private Facebook group.
If you are not ready to commit to an entire year of journaling, you can choose one to pay for one month at a time! Test out the process for a few months and see what you think! Yearly subscriptions are not refundable; however, you will continue to have access to the course and all content until your subscription expires.
A recording of the instructions will be available every month. The actual Zoom meeting will not be recorded.
12 NBCC credits ARE available for an additional fee. If you are a mental health professional and need CE credits, you will be given an option to add that on during check-out. In order to obtain NBCC credits (1 per month), you will be required to complete additional reading and take a quiz on therapuetic journaling techniques.
NO. Why? I believe that it is important to experience the interventions for yourself BEFORE you ask a client/student to go through this process. As you become more comfortable with journaling as an intervention (and not just an open stream of consciousness exercise) - then you become more authentic in your use of therapuetic writing with your clients. In the CE courses, you will take the exercises that we are practicing and apply them to clinical practice with a variety of presenting problems.
