The Therapeutic Use of Journaling with Adolescents
Utley, Allison; Garza, Yvonne
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, v6 n1 p29-41 2011
In this article, we discuss and provide an example of journaling in the context of counseling, focusing on its application with adolescents. A script to be read by the therapist is included with prompts for self-reflection and journaling by the client. The excerpts presented are the actual journal reflections taken from a teenager's journal. The proposed technique has been used with positive results with adolescents in a clinical setting. Additionally, we provide suggestions for expanding the concept of journaling to expressive artwork.
