Beginning with an explanation about the value of keeping a journal, Jacobs then guides readers through various processes to clarify our understanding of the subjective nature of emotions and how they are influenced by time and memory. Readers then learn how to define and evaluate their emotions, predict their emotional patterns, release emotions that no longer serve them, and refocus and organize their emotional life in ways that are more appropriate and fulfilling. Supported by over 30 hands-on exercises, this guide is an excellent resource for novice and seasoned journalists alike.--Larry Trivieri Jr.
“Writing for Emotional Balance is a great workbook that is well suited for people who need to get a better understanding of their own emotional lives. Jacobs is a smart and compassionate writer who provides a wide array of exercises that can help people to reach and maintain optimal emotional and mental health.”
—James W. Pennebaker, professor of psychology as the University of Texas at Austin and author of Opening Up: The Healing Power of Expressing Emotion and Writing to Heal: A Guided Journal for Recovering from Trauma and Emotional Upheaval
