July 11, 2011 - PRLog -- Ex-Offender and national speaker, Allison T. Moore brings her life changing “Take Your Life Back” Memoir Workshop to Delaware on Saturday, July 16, 2011. Allison incorporates her firsthand experience of using memoir/journaling and her extensive research on the benefits of writing in a one day barrier breaking workshop. Allison will share her personal story (see below), tactics for break through writing and hidden concepts that will process hurt and emotion from the emotional realm of the brain to the literary- clarity realm of expression on paper.
Allison will cover the emotional and physical benefits of writing including enhanced immune function, improved cardio-vascular function, fewer doctor visits, improved lung function for asthma suffers, decreased arthritis pain and symptoms, better sleep and decreased pain for cancer patients, improved liver function for heavy drinkers, higher white cell levels in AIDS patients, increased happiness, sense of well-being, and satisfaction with life, decreased worry, anxiety and depression, more self-confidence, smoother relationships and better problem solving. ”Often writing can help provide a purpose in difficult experiences”, says Allison. The process allows you to reach out and share those experiences with others. In the Journal of Clinical Psychology, James Pennebaker, Ph.D., and Janet Seagal, Ph.D., of the University of Texas at Austin, reports that people who write about personal details are healthier than those who don't.
On Saturday July 16th, Allison will be hosting a “Take Your Life Back” Memoir-Therapy workshop. From 9am-12pm, participants will learn the basics of memoir-therapy and begin with simple exercises for their journey. The workshop will include a continental buffet breakfast, and a copy of Allison’s Be Extraordinary Success Journal and one month of complimentary coaching. It will be held at the Christiana Hilton 100 Continental Drive, Newark DE. Tickets are only $67. Registration is required and may be purchased online at http://takeyourlifeback.eventbrite.com/. For a limited time, those who register may bring a guest for free.
Allison always knew she'd write her life story someday. But she always felt that the “thing” she really wanted to write about, hadn’t happened yet. Then it happened. In April 2007, she was declared a habitual offender and sentenced to seven years in prison. The process of journaling served as an 18-month therapy session, while serving her minimum sentence. Allison has regained control, experienced success, and shows others how to view obstacles as an opportunity. She provides guidelines for those who struggle with being hindered by their past, using the benefits of Memoir-Therapy.
