About the Book

“One of the most successful treatments for PTSD has been writing.”
—Andrew Komonchak, executive director,
Purple Heart Hall of Honor, Inc., NY

What if:
• There was a place available 24/7 where you could figure out some of life’s biggest challenges?
• You could work through grief, anger, fear, and anxiety without judgment?
• This place was as accessible as the top drawer of your favorite desk?
There is such a place, and it’s one of the best self-help tools available: it’s known as journal-writing.
In this book, you’ll gain encouragement and enlightenment about the power of journal-writing from two beloved authors, and from those around the country and around the globe who’ve generously shared their journal-writing experiences.
You can also start your own journal-writing practice right here in the pages of this book!
