Adapted from Dr. Kominars' popular workshops presented throughout the United States, this journal-writing book provides opportunities for ongoing self-discovery through the use of time-tested tools that young and old alike can use to meet life's challenges and find deeper satisfaction in daily living.

"Write for Life" shows readers how to take advantage of secrets known to generations of journal writers the world over. Both beginning journalers and seasoned practitioners can learn ways to:

-- Confront emotional issues from the past

-- Break through frustrating mental blocks

-- Deal with personal, professional, or medical crises

-- Revitalize life's meaning and purpose

-- Free creativity

-- Act on dreams for a better life

"There's a big difference between writing 'Dear Diary, I saw him today ... ' and getting things off your chest that you'd rather not say out loud," says Dr. Kominars. "Compelling evidence supports the journal-writing process as a legitimate integrative therapy."

In his journal-writing book, author Kominars shows how and why this practice has such healing powers. How does he know? He's been journaling for more than fifty years and has recovered from a life-threatening health issue and survived other crises as well. Journal writing works for him, and he demonstrates how it can work for others, too.

"Why, oh why, didn't someone walk up to me when I was 25 and hand me a book like this?"

- Frank McCourt, Pulitzer Prize-winning author
