Jaycee Dugard kept a journal. Was it therapeutic?

Jaycee Dugard had been kidnapped and sexually abused for years. She is a person who I care about. Hope she has a better life.

Have provided recreational therapy services for children ages 7 to 12 who’ve been abused for the last 7.5 years. Feel passionate about this type of work. Interested in Jaycee’s story and how she has survived.

CNN reported that Jaycee had kept a journal during this time. Believe that her journal may have been a therapeutic tool to help her survive during this time.

James Pennebaker has an interesting book called, “Opening Up,” which discusses the healing benefits for keeping a journal about thoughts and feelings.

Some of her journal comments were posted on CNN. Jaycee had written about thoughts and feelings as evidenced by statements like, “I feel like I am sinking.”

It still angers me a lot that the abusers had done this to her. Hope she gets the treatment and services she needs to help her heal.
