A big secret: I HATE journaling. I don’t have any desire to revisit particularly painful periods in my life–trust me, I remember them well enough–and I usually have a good handle on how I feel about things. And yet, I’ve suggested journaling many times to clients, because lots of people do like it.
For the rest of us, head over to the Family Resources of Greater Nebraska e-newsletter for more ideas on creative journaling. Counselors and clients alike might find some ideas that stick a little better than a Moleskine notebook and pencil.
If you’re wondering what I finally settled on as a journal alternative, you’re reading it! ;)
