Creative Writing & Mental Health
Wednesday 22nd Sept. 10am - 11am BST (Online)
Therapist Jane Hughes leads a writing workshop using some techniques and ideas gleaned from the field of mental health.
Jane Hughes is a therapist trained in Transactional Analysis and Person-centred Counselling based in Manchester, as well as currently completing a PhD in Creative Writing at University of Aberdeen. Creative Writing is often said to be good for our mental health, and 'talking therapies' help us to work through grief, anger, guilt and frustration, but can ideas and practices from the field of mental health assist us with our writing? She has explored some of these in seminars for medical students and in this event will have you thinking about issues surrounding mental health to get you writing in a workshop setting.
This workshop has limited spaces.
Supported by the University of Aberdeen Creative Writing Society
