The next Writing to Heal course (online) is just around the corner, starting August 19, 2013.
Writing to Heal: Soothing the Soul (through words, images, and experiential activities) is a dynamic, experiential and reflective writing-based course that encourages and allows participants to transform feelings about past abuse, assault or violence into empowered hope. Participants will use writing, art, and movement exercises to address topics that impact many survivors and loved ones.
Writing to Heal is designed for transgender individuals, gender non-conforming folks, and loved ones whose lives have been touched by sexual abuse or assault. (All other identities are welcome to participate! Likewise, people who have experienced other forms of violence will also benefit from this course.) The course is designed for individuals who are at nearly any point in their healing from sexual violence.
The course is led by FORGE staff, michael munson and Loree Cook-Daniels, who have constructed a curriculum that is both trauma-informed and trans-positive.
Writing to Heal is 100% free and 100% accessible to anyone, anywhere in the country. (You will need access to the internet and either a headset linked to the computer or a separate phone line to participate on the calls. If you don’t have direct access, most libraries offer free internet and we can help you find ways of getting online.)
