Ty Newydd

Writing for Health and Wellbeing

ty_newyddWith Graham Hartill and Victoria Field

This course has long been one of Tŷ Newydd’s most popular courses, aimed at teachers, social workers, support workers, counsellors and therapists alike.

This course offers the opportunity to experience the potential of creative and expressive writing to promote health and healing. Courses in different aspects of writing in health and social care have been held at Tŷ Newydd for over eight years and many past participants have found the week personally transformative. The course will draw on your own experience to explore the different ways writing can be used to reflect deeply on life experience, in sickness and in health, and to bring these findings to others, whatever their ability or experience. The course will be of interest to both beginners and experienced writers as well as medical and healthcare professionals, counsellors, therapists, social workers, librarians, academics, teachers, service users and service providers in a variety of health and therapeutic environments. The group usually offers a diverse range of age and experience and we work to develop a supportive, joyful and safe context for exploring writing and our lives.

Certificates of attendance for this course can be provided.

More information is available on our website.
