    Self-Help through Writing Self-Help

    How does the act of writing self-help help writers?
    The benefits of writing are widely documented, as are the benefits of teaching others. This, combined with the growing popularity of autoethnography, provides an opportunity to examine self-help authors and their relationships with their material. What benefits (or issues) arise from the act of writing self-help? For example, Sarah Knight (author of the No Fucks Given Guides) says her writing reflects what she has learnt about managing her own anxiety. However, was she already codifying her strategies while learning to deal with anxiety? Did writing help her, or was she simply out to fill a gap in the market?

    • Maggie Nelson's 'The Argonauts' is a great piece of autoethnography that the potential writer could look at when approaching this topic. – Samantha Leersen 8 months ago

    • There's something here for sure. I would probably be interested in doing some research on this and writing it – mmbranagan 8 months ago

    • I second Samantha's suggestions on The Argonauts. Maggie Nelson's most recent work, On Freedom, also ventures into her personal experience with anxiety, making art, motherhood, and the act of writing and creating in her own life as she meditates on the world around her. – kkenny 8 months ago

    • That is a seriously interesting topic. Perhaps, the writer could write self-help to see how much helped themselves? :D – Paddy 7 months ago

    Thanks for sharing these insights into journaling. I’ve just started gratitude journaling, and it has provided (so far) a way to close off each day on a positive note. This feels especially important when everything in life is so uncertain. I’m curious about journaling and autoethnography and how this helps people make sense of the world around them.

    In his book, Digital Minimalism, Cal Newport recommends journalling to counteract the negative effects of digital overwhelm/constantly using digital media, which seems like excellent advice.

    The Impact of Writing on Well-Being and Self-Development

    I love the visual of the comic components! Super helpful to know for anyone teaching about comics. Comics appear to be much like fiction: ways to broach a difficult or dry topic (as well as build emotional literacy and critical thinking skills). Thanks for sharing this article. It will be interesting to see whether policy makers will integrate comics into Australia’s curriculum at any point or whether graphic novel adaptations will find their way into the classroom.

    Comics in Education: Benefits and attitudes

    Some intriguing developments in education and treatment here. It’ll be interesting to see further research coming from the video games as therapy realm. Jess Hill wrote a thoroughly researched and nuanced book covering domestic abuse called “See What You Made Me Do” — I cannot recommend it enough to any readers interested in domestic abuse.
