Making and/or decorating journals is a great project for young and old, and there aren’t a lot of stipulations or guidelines.
Our clients use the journals for their own personal reasons …
- Some of our younger clients use them for drawing,
- Some of our teenage clients use them for putting their feelings down on paper,
- Some of our adult clients use them to keep track of the good things that happened to them that day, and
- Some of our married clients use them to let each other know how they are feeling.
Even some of our staff find them useful. We ask that you stay away from anything religious and/or vulgar or violent. Here is a Pinterest board to give you some ideas. Our therapists have indicated that smaller journals are better than large ones, as they may look daunting to our clients.
