The Big Trigger of COVID-19: Journaling Techniques for Coping

woman journaling

Lacuna Loft and Young Survival Coalition are working together again!

Together with YSC, we are starting weekly online journaling sessions to provide techniques to address the big trigger of COVID-19.  You are welcome to drop in once or come as often as you like.  The sessions will take place each Friday beginning April 16th through at least the end of May, for half an hour at 9 am PT / 11 am CT / 12:00 pm ET via video chat.

These techniques will be short, concrete and time-contained.  Jean Rowe from YSC is a certified journal therapist and, with the seasoned facilitator of many writing programs, Mallory Casperson (our CEO), we feel that you will all be in good hands.  What a rich discussion awaits!

Register in advance for this program.  You can attend one or attend all, whatever you need.  After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Join A Holiday Self Care Writing Program! It’s A Wonderful Life!

Young Survival Coalition and Lacuna Loft are excited to present a brand new program:

It’s a Wonderful Life: Taking Care during the Holidays

A 3-part journaling workshop for young adult cancer survivors

“It’s beginning to look a lot like” an even busier time of year! The holiday season brings nostalgia (like a favorite song), connection to family and friends and an undercurrent of expectation. There can be an added layer of managing expectations to be positive and happy – even in the middle of treatment or when everyone appears to look “fine” when, inside, they are not.

Finding peace between the wrapping paper and the stuffing is within reach! Join us for a 3 part holiday journal writing workshop to design a plan for low stress, create or reconnect with meaningful traditions, and decorate your soul with a little TLC.

Jean Rowe, LCSW, OSW-C, Certified Journal Therapist, is the Associate Director of Support Services at the Young Survival Coalition. Lacuna Loft and YSC are excited to offer this journal workshop online to young adult cancer survivors of any diagnosis.

Sundays, 4-6 pm PT / 7-9 pm ET: December 2nd, December 9th, December 16th.  Sign up below!

Where: Online video chat. We’ll send you more information about joining after you register. Please have a microphone headset and a webcam.

Who: Young adult cancer survivors.

When: The writing group meets on Sundays at 4 pm PT / 6 pm CT / 7 pm ET for 2 hours each week, for 3 parts, meeting on December 2nd, December 9th, and December 16th.  A commitment to attend each part is important to group continuity and in creating a safe space. Please be on time 🙂
