|Why Journal? The Science of Journaling|
|Over the last 20 years, the concept of keeping a journal or diary has been empirically shown to make therapy more effective and to diminish symptoms of depression, anxiety, panic, substance abuse, post-traumatic stress (PTSD), and many other disorders. Additionally, journaling is for everyone, including individuals who are not seeing a mental health practitioner. Likewise, the proven journaling benefits include better physical health (i.e. blood pressure, immune functioning) and an overall improved mood and mental well-being.|

|Who is Using My Therapy Journal .com? Benefit from our Online Journaling & Personalized Progress GraphsTM|
My Therapy Journal is for Individuals and Health Care Providers...
One group of people who are using My Therapy Journal are individuals who simply love journaling and having their journals communicate with them. Adolescents, college students, stay-home parents, young professionals, insightful adults, and techno-savvy grandparents. Basically, anyone who is self-curious, who feels relief in expressing themselves through writing, and/or who enjoys seeing concrete evidence of their progress via our Progress GraphTM. These individuals embrace self help journaling.
Another group of people are those undergoing painful, confusing, difficult, and/or daunting times in their lives. Therapy journaling is also for people living with the reality of having emotional, physical, mental, and/or cognitive difficulties. Our online diary is for everyone who suffers from depression, anxiety, panic, substance abuse, post-traumatic stress, obsessive-compulsions, mania, panic, and/or who has symptoms of any mental disorder and use journaling to heal. Some of these individuals are receiving some service from a mental health provider, and some are not. For some people, My Therapy Journal complements their work with a professional, and for others, seeking professional help is something they are not at all interested in.
HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS:
Treatment Centers = Some of these include university and college psychological centers of both large and small institutions. Centers dedicated to specific populations such as people with HIV+ and AIDS, people with disabilities, LGTBQ individuals, survivors of trauma or abuse, and/or members of AA, NA, Al-Anon, Alateen, among others. These centers encourage members to keep a diary for mental health.
Hospitals and Health Clinics = Some of these include clinics for people recovering from an addiction such as heroine, alcohol, gambling, sex, or even overspending. Hospital departments dealing with everything from trauma, chronic illness, and chronic pain to treatment adherence, post-operation recovery, and grief due to loss of a loved one. They utilize our program for recovery, depression, anxiety, and for journaling cancer.
Insurance Organizations and Providers = Insurance companies utilize our tool as part of health packages. These sometimes accompany treatment with mental health or medical professionals, and sometimes they don’t. It also helps clients keep track of how effective different treatments have been over a long period of time.
Mental Health Providers = Both the journaling and progress tracking components of My Therapy Journal are invaluable tools for mental health providers. Journaling mental health not only allows for the provider to have observable results of the treatment at hand, but it also allows the treatment to remain ongoing through the week, even in the provider’s absence. Psychodynamically-oriented therapists use My Therapy Journal for the journaling component of it whereas cognitive behavior therapy oriented therapists use it for the progress tracking graph. Psychiatrists use it to help clients track symptoms and how certain medications might be affecting these. Life coaches appear to utilize both the journaling and graphing components with their clients. Family and couple therapists also do this, and find themselves tailoring the graphing questions so that all members in the family keep a diary to track the same behavior and/or emotion simultaneously.
Military = The number of American and Canadian troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan is enormous, and the population of them with PTSD is as well. Both our journaling’s program ability to allow clients to create chronological narratives of their experience and the emotions associated with them, and the progress graph’s ability to have them observe themselves objectively, prove to be invaluable components of treatment and re-adjustment into civilian life.
Health Research Institutions = Pharmaceutical companies aiming at having their medications tested by human participants use My Therapy Journal as a simple, and cost-effective way of tracking the results of their medication on any target symptom or population. Data is collected by each participant’s self-report and is delivered already graphed and mapped out chronologically. Participants also use the other journaling benefits of My Therapy Journal and feel empowered by their ability to track their own reactions to the new medication.
