This is a 30-day interactive grief journaling intensive.
Journaling can be an amazing coping tool for processing grief related thoughts, emotions, and experiences, but finding the time and motivation to sit down and write can be difficult (especially when you’re grieving). In this collaborative journaling eCourse participants will be immersed in the grief journaling process through lessons about grief, daily motivation to write, and tips for success.
Though journaling prompts are simple by nature, those included in this course have been designed around psychological perspectives, coping technics, and themes common to the grief experience. Participants of this eCourse should be ready to journal, but they should also be prepared to explore and reflect upon their grief and grief related experiences; to learn about grief and coping, and to connect with their fellow participants.
General concepts covered in this course include: Grief 101; Managing difficult emotions while writing/journaling; Continuing bonds; Guilt and regret; Forgiveness; Loneliness and isolation; Gratitude
Date: The next section of this course will begin on September 4th, 2017
Length of this course: 30 days

How does this course work?
This course is designed to be collaborative, which means all participants start on the same day, the instructor sets the pace, and participants will have the opportunity to connect with their fellow classmates in the class forum.
This course is made up of:
- Prompts: There are 30 journaling prompts included in this course in all. These prompts touch on a variety of topics related to your grief; your loved one; and your relationship with your loved one.
- Lessons: Approximately every other day, participants will be provided with a lesson along with the prompt. This is one of the main ways that this course differs from other guided journals and writing/journaling courses. These lessons are designed to provide education on many different aspects of grief and coping.
- Class Forum: Participants will have the opportunity to connect with one another in the class forum through regular check-ins and community challenges.
What if I prefer to journal at my own pace or to journal privately?
We realize that some people may want the benefit of journaling prompts and lessons designed around themes common to the grief experience, but prefer to journal as a solitary, self-paced activity. If this is your preference, we recommend you take a look at our Self-Guided Grief Journaling Intensive. This course provides participants with the same prompts and lessons, but without an interactive component.
What if I’m not a writer?
That’s okay! The only requirement for this course is that you have a desire to explore journaling and the written word as a coping tool for processing, understanding, and expressing your grief.
