Healing through reflective writing: Breast cancer survivors' experience.

Author information

  • 1Caring Ways Cancer Resource Center, USA.


This article describes an intervention for breast cancer survivors called Journal of My Medical Experiences in which participants engaged in reflective writing over six weeks. The 107 participants were encouraged to explore concerns and issues in a safe online environment. About half of the women posted writings to a website once a week or more; others logged on solely to read what others had written. A number of themes emerged as the women explored their feelings. We share some of those.
