Most of us have a story inside waiting to be told. Sandra Marinella can help. She’s done years of pioneering work with veterans and cancer patients, as well as teaching writing and researching its profound healing properties. Riveting true stories illustrate her methods for understanding, telling, and editing personal stories in ways that foster resilience and renewal. She also shares her own experience of using journaling and expressive writing to navigate challenges including breast cancer and postpartum depression. Marinella explores how our myths, our metaphors, and our meaning are born of the stories we choose to tell. Each of the techniques, prompts, and exercises she shares helps us “to unravel the knot inside” and move forward toward greater well being.
