Lori uses Journal to the Self® therapeutic writing techniques in her classes, workshops and individual sessions. Journal writing is an excellent way to express thoughts and feelings in a safe non-judgmental environment. This style of journal writing is unique and can be helpful in managing everyday challenges that come with our busy lifestyles.
Have you been struggling with the emotions of caring for a loved one?
Through compassionate and engaging storytelling, Lori Ramos Lemasters relates her eight-year journey of caring for her parents and creates a compelling, informative, and useful workbook for caregivers of all ages and stages. Believable and authoritative, vulnerable and wise—this book is the perfect antidote to caregiver exhaustion. There’s pragmatic help on every page. You’re a Caregiver, Not a Saint is a welcome and treasured addition to the literature in journal therapy. —Kathleen Adams, LPC, PTR, Director, Center for Journal Therapy Inc.
Caring for a loved one with mental or physical challenges is hard work, especially now with the added worries due to COVID and limited service availability.
Are you overcome by stress, exhaustion, guilt, grief, isolation or any of the other natural emotions that can come with caring for a loved one? Do you try to practice self-care but find it falls at the bottom of your "To-Do" list?
Join us for free monthly on line discussion sessions to learn how to develop coping skills and how to use a journal for a safe place to honestly express your feelings and identify triggers. Aside from the monthly workshop you have the ability to share your questions or concerns and learn from me and other caregivers about their experiences.
