I have asked this question once before, but suggestion of journaling was not helpful for my client. She is in her mid teens and does not like writing. We have done grief painting and other grief related activities as she has a creative side.My client has had nightmares (for years now) about the sudden passing of her grandmother(this year) and sudden passing of her grandfather (3 years ago,). Her nightmares are currently about her grandmother and are keeping her from sleeping and the night mares are scary. Very vivid and include my client.Recently, she has begun having visual hallucinations that her grandmother is present, in front of her. This does not frighten her, but upsets her.I have suggested EMDR, but I think that might be too much for her right now.Any suggestions at all, even small ones are appreciated,Thank you,MSW, RSW

Becka, I can relate to this. My daughter cannot allow herself to cry in front of anyone, and she would hate to be expected to journal. My suggestions would be for her to keep a SHORT gratitude journal/workbook very day, practise self-compassion (however that looks for her), learn & practise some ACT activities (Russ Harris) so that she can feel a bit more in control, make a video/iMovie to honour her grandmother/grandfather, writ a poem/song for them, or make an appointment with a good medium. This has helped my daughter a lot

Would writing down feelings/emotions be helpful? I once was asked to do that to reflect on my emotions when I went through a tough time. Would this work for children too?
