Branch, Tamia Charón Ranae, "The Mirror: How Writing is the Reflection of an Author’s Emotions" (2023). Masters Theses. 1014.
This thesis examines research that shows writing can be more than just putting words on a page. Writing, especially in prose and poetry, can be therapeutic as it allows for the individual to separate the problem from themselves, analyze, reflect, and simultaneously lead the individual to a path of healing.
