Five Ways to Better Days is a guide to using expressive writing to achieve health and happiness, bringing the reader through a programme of expressive writing and other important practical mental health and wellbeing strategies. In doing so it focuses on five key areas of positive psychology: Gratitude: recognition and appreciation for what you already have in your life Flow: how to immerse yourself in the present moment Flexible thinking: how to appreciate other viewpoints and become more tolerant Goals: how to identify what is most emotionally important and practically achievable in your life Connections: how to value and deepen your connections with others In an exceptionally practical way, each section of the book provides the reader with writing and non-writing suggestions, practices, ideas and activities to deepen their sense of wellbeing. Linking the fields of expressive writing and positive psychology in a new and dynamic way, this book provides a practical guide for both the general reader and mental health professionals in counselling, health and social care settings. The practicality of the book also makes it an ideal book for workshops and expressive writing/psychology course material. The techniques provided are based on psychological principles but also on the author’s own knowledge and experience of the rich field of expressive writing. Five Ways to Better Days is for anyone who wants to use writing to enhance their creativity and their sense of wellbeing, health, resilience and happiness.

Language Arts Workshop: Purposeful Reading and Writing Instruction presents a manageable way of organizing instruction, exploring a gradual release of responsibility through meaningful experiences in all areas of need for literacy development, including oral language, spelling, vocabulary, word study, fluency, and comprehension. Like an apprenticeship, novice readers and writers learn a craft under the guidance of a skilled and knowledgeable teacher. Through the language arts workshop, students read and write everyday, spending time working with their teacher, collaborating with peers, and working independently. Learn to model successful language arts teaching for your students Workshop format addresses the diverse learning needs of students, including English language learners, students with disabilities, and students who read at, above, or below grade level to support early interverntion or response to intervention programs. Predictable chapter organization clarifies the workshop approach and framework. Authentic examples from successful classrooms engage readers and model effective language arts instruction. A strong focus on assessment grounds the instruction, and a compendium of assessment tools prepares readers to drive their own classroom.
