Revision with unchanged content. Humanity enjoys the ability to hear, interact with, and tell their own or other's stories. However, it is less common for the memoir and journal to be used in conjunction to one another. This book bridges the personal memoir with experimental writing. In Bridging the Psychological Gap: Using the Personal Memoir as a Method for Teaching Others to Journal / Self-Help, Rhonda Richmond opens another discussion about how memoir, journal, dream log and poetry can impact the healing process. In this book Richmond not only explains how she merges these writing forms, she candidly lays out the journals that she wrote during her abusive marriage; and in doing so gives us all new revelation on how we can write ourselves through a tragedy.
