Writing the Heart: Expressive Writing Virtual Workshop

March 11, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EST

Due to the high demand and interest, the Ted Rogers Centre for Heart Research is organizing a second expressive writing workshop in 2021. These workshops are for Canadian patients living with heart failure or heart disease.

Being diagnosed with heart failure or disease can make you feel as if your world has turned upside down. Powerful emotions arise that are often difficult to express.

“Expressive writing” has proven emotional and physiological benefits for those managing chronic illness, hardship or trauma. The act of writing can help you feel better.

This 90-minute virtual session is expertly led by Sharon Bray, EdD, author, educator and heart failure patient. Here you’ll learn why – and how – writing can be healing, learn expert tips on how to get started, and complete short sample writing exercises.
