an inspiring and compelling book 6 juillet 2009
Par zazenpen - Publié sur Amazon.com
"Writing Away the Demons: Stories of Creative Coping through Transformative Writing" is a collection of moving, beautifully told tales of human life enfolded in Sherry Reiter's equally evocative explanation of the creative healing process of writing. The combination gives the reader an experience that is inspiring on many levels.

The book begins with a clear description of the principles of transformative writing, drawing on understandings of the writing process from ancient Egypt to modern clinical research. Dr. Reiter's outline of ten principles of the power of writing to transform demystifies some of the complexity of the writing process. She writes about the empowering aspect of bringing word and narrative to overwhelming events and the aspect of safety, ritual and witness that can derive from the autonomy we have in the writing process. Writing's expansive and productive powers are clarified. Dr. Reiter carefully presents the facets of the process of writing as a creative alternative to stress so that the reader can operationalize her statement, "No fight, no flight - just write!"

The thirteen chapters that follow are as close to case studies as a flower is to a botany text. They are combinations of poetry, prose and some illustration that convey what thirteen remarkable people have been through and how writing has been an instrument of salvation. These are harsh tales of life and death, of the vagaries and cruelty of people and of fate. With titles such as "Notes from the Back of the Class" and "The Poem That Was Snake Medicine" the human drama is portrayed and the reader witnesses recovery from devastations of loss, abuse, war and displacement. Dr. Reiter frames each chapter with introductory and closing comments that contain and amplify the messages within. There are also very useful notes and lists of resources for readers on a variety of clinical and artistic topics.

The range of experiences described in this book might seem extreme or harsh to absorb in one way, but the net effect is powerfully transformative in its own right. The exposure allows us all to open our awareness to the true breadth of our own experiences and the bravery and brilliance of the contributors to this book are truly inspiring. Dr. Reiter allows us to share experiences and understand them at the same time. "Writing Away the Demons" is a great contribution to the literature of writing therapy.

Creativity can be a tool for a healthier soul. "Writing Away the Demons: Stories of Creative Coping Through Transformative Writing" is a collection of stories by those who, while in crisis, took up a pen and paper and wrote stories, poetry, memoirs, and more in order to cope with their dilemmas ranging from addiction to cancer. Showing the power of literary expression, "Writing Away the Demons" is a very highly recommended read for those who need something to look towards for strength.

Therapeutic Writing 14 juillet 2009
Par Cynthia Gustavson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Five stars to Dr. Reiter for giving therapists and readers this wonderful resource. The stories are compelling and I found her comments at the end of the chapters very helpful. This is truly a textbook on how to use writing for self-healing. One of her brave storytellers says that his writing created "bandages for the holes in my soul." Thank you Dr. Reiter for adding a valuable book to the literature of using writing as process.

Writing courageously 13 août 2009
Par A. G. Forcier - Publié sur Amazon.com
The writers of these stories let us know how writing heals, yes, but they also inspire us by the courage they show in giving voice to the painful and hidden. This is a collection for the reader wanting to understand the unbearable, the sufferer seeking a tool for healing, and the helper -- friend, family, or counselor -- who provides comfort and support. Riveting and sobering writing.
Writing Away the demons offers excellent insights, as well as guide to healing from traumatic events. 20 janvier 2013

I would recommend this book to social workers, psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, poetry therapists, and some in the general public concerned with effective care of persons suffering stress. Especially, I would recommend the book to persons personally dealing with stress from traumatic occurrences, which could include grief, accidents,and any overwhelming, painful upheaval in life.
