The Healing Journal – A 5-Week Journaling Class with Billie Wade

Course Description

The Healing Journal© supports you as you recover from life’s challenges, even trauma. Journaling is one of the best ways to explore emotions and feelings, sort through events and relationships, and strengthen self-awareness and problem-solving. Journaling is a useful tool whether or not used in tandem with professional counseling. Each two-hour module includes in-class writing, and small-group (dyads or triads) and large-group discussion. The course is not designed to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disorder, condition, ailment, illness, sickness, or disease. Professional intervention is encouraged.


  • The class is intended for adults 18 years and older. Participants register for the class either through their own interest or referral by their counseling professional. Participants may or may not be skeptical of journaling. The class is appropriate for people who have never journaled as well as people who have moderate journaling experience. Seasoned journalers may want to find ways to expand their current practice. Curiosity and a willingness to look at possibilities are significant prerequisites.
