Arising from a research project conducted over four years, Creative Life Writing as a Tool for Transformative Learning, examines the effect of creative writing on learners, in terms of their personal development and individual sense of self. The developmental and therapeutic benefits of writing fictional autobiography are examined through case studies following a number of students from diverse backgrounds with wide ranging life histories. Starting from a teaching and learning perspective, Hunt considers cognitive linguistic approaches and neurophysiological research into the self and consciousness, exploring: The benefits and challenges of creative writing as a therapeutic activity The relationships between literary structures and the processes of thinking and feeling Creative writing as a tool for personal and professional development Collaborative learning and the role of the group The role of cognitive emotional learning in adult education At a time when #xE2;#xAC;#xDC;therapeutic education#xE2;#xAC;" is under attack, this book brings a fresh perspective, highlighting the benefits and applications of creative life writing in adult education. With a diverse theoretical grounding supported by empirical research, the arguments presented will interest teachers and researchers working in the field of adult education and professionals involved in therapeutic practice.
