Bibliotherapy: reading and writing for wellbeing – a story of collaboration and supportive spaces
Our interactive workshop will introduce staff and students to Bibliotherapy and the use of reading and expressive writing as a way of enhancing wellbeing and positive self-awareness. We will share books and writing activities to inspire and equip you with creative tools for your own personal development practice.
Aligned with LJMU’s strategic aim of providing experiences ‘beyond the curriculum and supporting communities’, our workshop will offer insights from research as well as personal experience about the benefits of reading and writing the self and invites participants to take part in some short writing activities (no skills necessary, just a willingness to see where your pen/pencil might take you!).
