Work? Optional! – Writing and Trauma Work – Out of the Rain and the Dark and into the Song
If money were out of the equation, would you still work? If yes, why, and how much? If not, what would you do with your free time?
Yes, I would work. I would spend my time writing both non-fiction and fiction, especially short stories.
I would also establish a Trauma Practice and work with those who have experienced life traumas of various kinds. Cape Town, South Africa has the highest levels of trauma experiences of various kinds, including PTSD, in the country. I would like to be able to travel to areas that have experienced trauma or disaster and give assistance there. I would use coaching and Logotherapeutic techniques. I would focus on finding meaning and meaning making. Mindfulness and meditation would also be included.
Stress reduction techniques would marry very well with the above.
I see this as my future work. Out of the rain and the dark and into the song.
