James Pennebaker, PhD, is Chair of Psychology at the University of Texas – Austin and author of The Secret Life of Pronouns, Opening Up, and other books. He is an internationally recognised expert on the connection between writing and better health. In this session, we explore the fascinating healing power of expressive writing, and how it can be used as an effective treatment for traumatic experiences and emotional wounds. This interview was recorded as part of our 2020 Holistic Change Summit, which featured sessions with 25 world leading psychologists, neuroscientists and authors, who shared their latest evidence based approaches to behaviour change.
