Team Leader of Counseling Services Brittany Pierson says her team is excited to share the “Wreck This Journal” books.
Thanks to a grant from the Office Depot Foundation, WellSpring Resources was able to purchase 112 “Wreck This Journal” books for children and adolescents participating in its Counseling Services program.
These books will be used during counseling sessions to promote creativity and healing.
Team Leader of Counseling Services Brittany Pierson said her team is excited to share these books with their consumers.
“I feel that the ‘Wreck This Journal’ books can be a valuable tool for counseling children and adolescents,” Pierson said. “These are not ordinary books — they are part book, part journal. The book contains interesting prompts to help start the creative process.”
Pierson said the books encourage children to write, draw and engage in other activities that can help them learn to express their emotions in a healthy way.
“It prompts the use of effective coping strategies for kids and teens as they learn to regulate their emotions,” Pierson said. “The books can be used during counseling sessions as well as at home or school, so they can practice this new, healthy coping skill any time.”
