Writing and Wellness Workshops and Teens Support Groups
The most powerful therapeutic process I know is to contribute to rich story development.
Michael White, Founder of Narrative Therapy
Writopia Lab offers both Writing and Wellness Workshops and Teen Support Groups. This powerful program combines Writopia Lab writing games and exercises with Narrative Therapy practices.
Narrative therapy addresses: social anxiety, depression, phobias, executive functioning, impulse control, and more.
In age-based groups or in one-on-one private sessions, young writers write and rewrite their own stories, see how language has the power to shape their understanding of themselves, and find tools to solve their own problems.
