About the Book

This research examines the psychological benefits incurred as a result producing well-written autobiographical narratives about personally traumatic events. Two participant groups were surveyed. A core group of five participants received a 10-week course in writing technique that used personal narratives as the vehicle of instruction. A second group consisted of survey responses from 10 former University of Toronto students who had taken the course after which the research course was modelled. All participants had written stories about personal trauma and all reported that they had obtained psychological benefits from the process of transforming traumatic events into well-written incident-based stories. Psychological benefits included healing, reframing, improved social perspective-taking skills and a better understanding of and compassion for self and others.
