Since our inception we have worked alongside medical professionals to develop and present expressive writing programs in research and treatment facilities around the country. We created a curriculum that is in use in the Department of Defense’s premier research and treatment facility for PTSD and TBI, the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE) at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. We regularly facilitate workshops alongside creative arts therapists at NICoE and other facilities for DoD, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

We in the VWP are not medical professionals. We’re writers. Our work in expressive writing has been guided by consultations with and evaluated by medical doctors, researchers, and creative arts therapists. We would be happy to discuss expanding our work to include additional medical, research, and therapeutic programs. You can contact our director at for more information.
