This morning, Bonni Stahl and Debbie Swiderski facilitated a reflective writing session with the interns. I'd be curious to hear how the interns perceived the session, but the literature suggests that good things come from prompted reflective writing exercises. The attached paper describes a qualitative study of interns participating in reflective writing session throughout the year. Aside from expected result like deeper emotional reflection and healing, interns also said that the writing had an impact on motivation to improve, increased awareness of progress over time and made them evaluate their values and priorities.
