Journal Therapy- 31 Journal Prompts For You | Divya Toshniwal |

Journal Therapy is a writing therapy that focuses on the internal feelings, thoughts, and experiences of the participant. It uses reflective writing to help the participant gain clarity on their thoughts. One does not have to be an excellent writer to get into journal therapy, rather, journal therapy is just a way of expression.

Once you write on the given prompts and read them again from a neutral point of view, you have better clarity on your feelings and thoughts. The trick (and it's really important) is that you write without putting any filters in your mind. You have to be true to yourself and write exactly what you feel like writing for the particular prompt without rethinking or scanning it.

The difference between keeping a journal and journal therapy is that the therapeutic use of journal writing is specific to the prompts and activities. These are specifically designed for each individual to help them gain perspective on themselves and their lives. It is an excellent way to know yourself better and gain self-awareness.

Journal therapy and therapeutic journal writing have been used in treatment for a number of conditions, including:

  • PTSD
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Self-esteem
  • OCD
  • Grief and Loss
  • Interpersonal Relationships
  • Substance Abuse and more.
