Pioneering the Next 30 Years of Journal Therapy

Kay Adams on JournalTalkSpeaking with Kay Adams is always a treat, and offers the proverbial smorgasbord of lively topics under the umbrella of journal-writing for health and happiness!

Kay is author to numerous books on journaling, in addition to being the editor of the ten-volume series, It’s Easy to W.R.I.T.E.! Her Center for Journal Therapy was a sponsor for the 30-Day Digital Journaling Challenge, and Kay is also my co-author to this published paper which details the results of before-and-after surveys taken by the first 1,500 participants of that same challenge.

In this episode, you’ll learn about Kay’s recent journaling retreat in Ireland, and her upcoming Journal Conference celebrating the 30-year anniversary of her work in journal therapy. We also reveal some of the most interesting, surprising findings from the 30-day digital journaling challenge. Kay also provides a teaser for her forthcoming workbook, Your Brain on Ink, combining journal-writing and neuroplasticity, co-authored with Deborah Ross, a previous JournalTalk guest. (JournalTalk, Episode #71, March 22, 2016)

Q&A: “How Do I Become a Journaling Coach?”

JournalTalk Q&A Podcast Logo with Heather SeversenSandra asks, “How does someone become a journaling coach?” And the answers are many! Do you have a passion for sharing the benefits of journal-writing with others?

Have you experienced some of the tremendous benefits in keeping a personal writing practice, and now you feel the urge to help others obtain those same benefits?

In this episode, Heather Severson helps me list of some of the numerous ways to go about becoming a “Journal Coach”. And with a dose of giddy playfulness, I also remind everyone, in the words of Dr. Frankenfurter, “Don’t dream it; Just be it!”

There are several options discussed in this audio, so don’t feel there is just “one right answer” here. But there are some pragmatic and trusted roads you can take that will land you into being a confident and effective coach. Among my most highly recommended, especially for “non-therapists” is this:

Become a life coach who uses journal-writing as the primary tool to help clients get unstuck, and transform old patterns that no longer serve them. Take this assessment to see if Frame of Mind Coaching is a beneficial path for you! I am an affiliate of the Frame of Mind Coaching program because I absolutely love it, and strongly recommend it.

Fuel the dialogue: Are you looking to become a certified journal instructor or life coach? Post your response at the bottom of this webpage, in the comments section.
