Printable Writing Worksheets

Writing Worksheets are an extremely useful tool for building foundational writing skills in children. For this reason, they are specifically tailored to suit students from Pre-K through G3. It is never too early to start teaching writing skills, and it is just as important as math and literacy skills.

When children use Writing Worksheets, they are able to develop their writing skills in a systematic and structured way. They start with simple tasks like tracing letters, words and numbers, and as they progress, their tasks become more advanced. For instance, older preschoolers and kindergarteners start to learn about sentence formation and punctuation, while first and second grade students learn about capitalization and grammar. These worksheets also introduce children to more complex forms of writing, such as creative writing, persuasive writing and opinion pieces.

These worksheets also help children practice their handwriting. For this, many printable writing worksheets feature dotted lines that children must trace over with a pencil. This helps children learn proper letter formation and gain the fine motor skills needed to write legibly. These worksheets are also beneficial for children who struggle with handwriting and need extra practice.

Writing Worksheets can also provide a platform for children to be creative. Depending on the task, students can choose their own colors and styles of writing. This prompts them to be more invested in the assignment, which helps to encourage and motivate them. The writing practice worksheets also allow teachers and parents to assess the progress their child has made within a certain subject area.

Overall, free printable writing worksheets are a critical aspect of children’s developmental journey. They provide a fun and engaging way for kids to learn the fundamentals of writing in an interactive environment and help them to build the skills needed to become proficient writers. By the time these children reach the third grade, they will have acquired a solid foundation of writing skills that will effectively carry them through their academic and professional future.

Self-Expressive Writing Worksheets: A Collection of PDF’s

Writing Worksheets

Bottling up emotions can lead to stress and sometimes depression and as such, writing can increase mental health because it offers a safe and confidential way to express emotions instead of bottling them up.

This article discusses the many benefits of self-expressive writing to clients and how they can overcome their fears and get started on writing.

Before you continue, we thought you might like to download our three Goal Achievement Exercises for free . These detailed, science-based exercises will help you or your clients create actionable goals and master techniques to create lasting behavior change.

This Article Contains:

Benefits of writing, instructions for the practitioner, working with writing therapy, a collection of self-expressive writing worksheets, further writing resources, a take-home message.

The positive effects of self-expressive writing are:

  • A significant healing effect in individuals who have experienced a traumatic or extremely stressful event. Participants in a study who wrote about their most traumatic experiences for 15 minutes, four days in a row, experienced better health outcomes up to four months later (Baikie & Wilhelm, 2005).
  • Over 100 asthma and rheumatoid arthritis patients showed similar results as above. Participants who wrote about the most stressful event of their lives experienced better health evaluations related to their illness (Smyth, Stone, Hurewitz, & Kaell, 1999).
  • A recent study suggested that expressive writing may even improve immune system functioning, although it may need to be sustained for the health benefits to continue (Murray, 2002).
  • In a study by Burton and King (2004), mood measures were taken before and after participants wrote about either an intensely positive experience (IPE) or a neutral topic for 20 minutes each day for three consecutive days. The results showed that writing about IPEs was associated with an enhanced positive mood along with significantly fewer health center visits for illness, compared to controls.

In addition to these more concrete benefits, regular therapeutic writing can help the writer:

  • Find meaning in their experiences, view things from a new perspective, and see the silver linings in their most stressful or negative experiences (Murray, 2002).
  • Experience important insights about themselves and their environment that may be difficult to determine without focused writing (Tartakovsky, 2015).

Writing therapy has proven effective for many different conditions or mental illnesses, including (Lepore & Smyth, 2002; Pennebaker, 1997, 2004):

  • Posttraumatic stress
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Grief and loss
  • Chronic illness issues
  • Substance abuse
  • Eating disorders
  • Interpersonal relationship issues
  • Communication skill issues
  • Low self-esteem
  • Increased feelings of wellbeing
  • Reduced physician visits
  • Reduced absenteeism from work
  • Improved academic grades
  • Enhanced immune system functions

writing therapists

People who reported having a highly traumatic experience and who kept the experience a secret showed far more health problems than people who openly talked about their trauma.

His research also showed that, compared to people who were told to write about non-emotional topics, those who wrote about trauma showed improved physical health.

“[…] emotional writing boosted immune function, brought about drops in blood pressure, and reduced feelings of depression and elevated daily moods.”

(The Secret Life of Pronouns, 2011)

Your help as a practitioner can be hugely beneficial to your client. When reading or listening to your client’s writing, try to discover in what way the client is expressing their emotions. Are there any signs of emotions being talked over too quickly or being suppressed? Is there repetition in their choice of vocabulary?

If clients are using a high number of what is referred to as ‘negative emotion words’ in their writing, this is not only a sign that something is wrong but also a sign that it may be time for you as a therapist to intervene.

Pennebaker found that the more people used positive emotions while writing about emotional upheavals, the more their physical and mental health improved in weeks and months after the experiment.

Pennebaker’s research also concluded that people whose health improved the most from writing used only a moderate number of negative emotion words.

“People who expressed negative emotion language at very high rates did not benefit from writing – almost as if they were awash in their unhappiness.”

This means as a helping professional, it is your job to make sure that a client uses a healthy mix of positive and negative emotional words to express themselves.

You can do this by asking your client to describe:

  • The situation from both a positive and negative point of view.
  • Both the positive and negative emotions they experienced.
  • What good things a certain negative experience led to later in life.

Note that it’s not about stimulating your client to be overly positive or negative in a forced way. Rather, it’s about helping your client to use a healthy mix of positive and negative emotional words when expressing themselves, correcting the imbalance between the two.

To summarise, when discussing your client’s writing with them, try to discover:

  • The reason why they are sharing these particular emotional experiences.
  • What kind of adjustment the client is showing in their writing.
  • Whether they are using a healthy balance between positive and negative emotional words to express themselves.

Start with your confidentiality agreement

You can start by telling your client that – as with the rest of the therapy – nothing they share in writing will be read by anyone without their consent, including you.

Let your client decide whether they want you to:

  • Read all of their writing.
  • Read only what they feel comfortable sharing with you.
  • Don’t read any of their writing.
  • You can also ask your client to read aloud what they feel like sharing. This way you can gauge their response, hear their tone, and see their emotions.

Explain the goal of these writing exercises

Make it clear what the goal of the writing exercise is before the client starts. This should prevent frustration and strengthen the client’s resolve to follow through.

The client should not be concerned with anything else except writing a certain amount of words for a certain amount of time. We have found this approach works best with writing exercises.

Instruct your client not to be concerned about:

  • Spelling or grammar
  • Word use (all curse words allowed)
  • Consistency
  • Sticking to a topic
  • Whether their writing is “any good”
  • Anyone else but you reading their writing
  • Succeeding or failing
  • Writing too much

Know that your client often carries not just their problems within them, but also the solutions. Writing is a way to extract both the problems and the solutions. As a helping professional, you facilitate and guide them through this process.

It is why it’s recommended that you, the practitioner, have done these writing exercises yourself before giving them to a client. Insight is key!

Advice from practitioners working with writing therapy:

I’ve been a big believer in writing as a superhighway to the subconscious since I began my practice many years ago. For many people, it can be a great outlet and effective tool. I have found adding a component of ritual is particularly useful as well. For example, journaling about letting go of trauma or pain is supercharged by adding the ritual of burning the pages when the writer feels like he or she is ready. As the brain registers the literal release of the pain, all the senses become involved and the message of moving past the issue is absorbed fully into consciousness.

– Marilynn Halas

Usually, when I work with writing I like to start the session in a relaxed manner (guided meditation). We will then discuss a subject that I propose and immediately following the clients are given 10-15 minutes to write freely. Afterwards, the clients in the group who would like to share, read out what they have written within the circle. For the last step, I like to get everybody to share in one word, what they are taking home from the writing session.

– Tiziana De Giosa

A lot of client struggle is with letting go of their addict-life and getting in touch with who they are and where it is they want to go to. For clients, it is useful to have small exercises, (autonomic) goal-oriented, to make the transition from their self-destructive addicted life towards a value-based life. At this moment, writing is not regularly implemented in therapy sessions. Sometimes I ask clients, to briefly evaluate the day in the evening by writing three things for which they are grateful. I have to note that the intellectual and introspective capacities among clients often differ very much.

-Berber Jacquemijns

I notice that not all of my clients are comfortable expressing their feelings. Some do, some shy away, whilst others just can’t. Of course, in all cases, I use writing therapy little or more depending on the responses I get from them. I use it as a catharsis tool. I literally call it the ‘vomit’ time! I ask my clients to write on a topic, which we then read together in order to gain perspectives on the emotions that they have transferred to paper. These are in the form of questions. The brain becomes aware of why a particular, paragraph, sentence or word has been written as it has just been transferred from the subconscious mind. When we read it together, there is a deeper level of understanding to that feeling/emotion. Stay with the client even if the writing does not make any sense at a conscious level but as a practitioner, we can recognise that the writing comes from a place of hurt, pain, grief and/or happiness and joy. Emotions can cloud writing and it takes time to separate the water from the mud. This form of therapy helps make the client an expert of their own experience. From a trauma-informed approach, it gives the client/writer the ability to literally re-write their trauma narrative which could be considered the integration phase of trauma recovery. Also, it allows clients to identify, look up words and use examples which they may not have the confidence to communicate through speech. Research is just starting to catch up now on the healing powers of writing. Writing therapy allows room for story-telling which many cultures engage in and use to pass on their history and traditions. I would imagine from Eastern philosophy this is what one would refer to as “speaking their truth”..

– Anu Krishna

Most of the time, a topic of what to write about will come up during a session. From there they may be asked to do a writing assignment based on what is said. For example, a client that has 30+ years of sobriety almost killed himself at the age of 21 while driving under the influence. During one of the sessions, he lamented that he wished someone had talked to him about his behavior because he may be in a better place at this point in this life. The accident caused significant spinal injuries so he has some physical deficits associated with gross motor movements. His assignment was to write a letter to his 21-year-old self to let him know how his life was turning out. My goal was to help him see how much he had accomplished in his life, what he was currently doing, and how the accident contributed in some positive ways as well. We discussed the assignment and since it was developed during the session, I had not had the opportunity to think about clear examples to answer the client’s questions. We spent a few sessions after he wrote the letter to flesh out some additional information and he was able to gain closure. When I request writing assignments, clients invariably ask how to do it. I typically ask them questions to help them think about what’s important to them. Sometimes it’s still unclear for them, so I will verbally start a letter with them and ask them to fill in the blank.

Workshets for writing and journaling

Motivation for the Client

This worksheet contains basic instructions on writing to help your client get started.

It will help the client understand why they are writing and learn something about themself and gain insight into the thought process behind choices and decision-making.

Fear Setting

The fear setting worksheet will help clients identify their fears and actions to overcome said fears.

It’s a structured checklist to identify clients’ fears and highlight the benefits and rewards of taking the action needed or the results of inaction.

Healing from Trauma Through Writing

Since writing is a form of expressive therapy , the goal of this exercise is to help clients find meaning and resolution in their trauma.

This exercise is intended to focus on your most traumatic life experience. Let your ideas flow fluidly as you recount the past, the present, or the future. As you write, explore the emotions.

Reflection Prompts

Reflection prompts are a great tool to make daily journaling easy and fun. They are simple, quick questions to be asked regularly.

They can also overcome the paralysis and mind blankness that can happen when faced with staring at nothing but a blank page.

Self-Reflective Writing Exercises

This worksheet contains a list of self-reflective writing exercises. It is beneficial to spend more time reflecting on and working through the topics in these exercises.

Working Towards Your Ideal Self

The Working Towards Your Ideal Self worksheet will encourage your client to place themselves in their ideal future — a life of their own making.

It will allow the client to visualize what the best version of themselves would look like and establish a framework of goals whilst highlighting harmful or non-conducive behavior.

Writing About Intensely Positive Experiences

Writing About Intensely Positive Experiences for 20 minutes over three consecutive days will help improve the client’s mood.

3. Expressive Writing: Words that Heal – James Pennebaker and John Evans

Expressive Writing

Revealing research results, this book shows the effect expressive writing has on physical health.

The book reveals why writing therapy, as opposed to talking therapy, can be more effective, especially when dealing with trauma.

From the instructions: “Write about what keeps you awake at night. The emotional upheaval bothering you the most and keeping you awake at night is a good place to start writing.”

In summary, there are great therapeutic benefits to writing and writing therapy. Keeping a journal can be extremely helpful for the user.

It is a low-cost, easily accessible, and versatile form of therapy. It can be done individually or guided by a mental health professional. It can be practiced within a group and even added as a supplement to another form of therapy.

These benefits are certainly not trivial, as the potential positive outcomes of self-expressive writing therapy reach much further and deeper than simply writing in a diary.

Kimberly

This is amazing and very helpful!

I just have a question…Is one allowed to use these worksheets to work with, say, vulnerable youth within a certain youth-focused programme? I am currently a mentor and have a strong passion for the use of Expressive writing for therapy, and plan on having a workshop with a strong focus on this. What are the restrictions to using your worksheets? Do I have to reference you? What exactly do I need to do especially if I am going to use it constantly, as I believe it is your intellectual property?

Nicole Celestine, Ph.D.

Hi Kimberly,

Glad you enjoyed this post, and thank you for asking 🙂 You are welcome to use these worksheets consistently with your clients provided you use them on their present template, which includes our website as the source. What you can’t do is onsell them commercially to your clients, or republish them in another printed or online outlet.

Hope that helps and all the best with your work.

Hi The article 83 Benefits of Journaling for Depression, Anxiety, and Stress By Courtney E Eckerman is SPOT ON I’m 51 Began Journaling when I was 17 because I was a 1. Loner 2. Depressed person (didn’t know it then – diagnosed Bipolar by a psychologist who I sleeked help from…..didn’t work out…long story) 3. Had a disassociated Personality – stemmed from childhood ( had emotional abandonment disorder – from my mom leaving me at 4 years old for 4 years – I’m Eastern European and was brought up in a household where you don’t talk about your problems so I began to write because I had no one to talk to, I discovered all this through writing in a Journal for over 28 years – And I self- healed. I combined my disassociated personalities accidentally through a practice I had never heard about prior to doing it called MINDFULLNESS – but this MINDFULLNESS EXPERIMENT came about from journaling – My Journaling took many type of forms * Poetry – ( Came through me in a Rushing Outpour – I can not write poetry now to save my life) * Self- Help Note taking * Dialogue from favorite Movies – Usually deep ones dealing with Artist’s Biographies * Spiritual Undertones This Last One – Spiritual Undertone – I felt it through my writing – Not right away For most of my life I wanted to die -because the emotional pain was very overwhelming The Journal Was My Best Friend – it helped ease the Pain When I’d write things such as I’m a loser – I never do anything right There would be answers back with my own pen ( At the time I didn’t reflect on it – never did) such as You’re more than you know. A conqueror of Life . A Power to be reckoned with Messages Like that ( If you are a Depressed Person – You know that there’s no way that you can have such feelings off low self worth and in the next line be able to pump yourself up So there is a SPIRITUAL FORCE that begins working through you when you start asking and Probing WHO AM I ? I was obsessed with this because I was going crazy with my disassociated personalities. And abscessed with figuring out my PURPOSE in life. While I was going through this obsessive quest I couldn’t understand why it was that I was so abscessed with it – in the end I figured out it’s because it’s a CALLING – A SPIRITUAL CALLING – and once I accepted it and began working towards it I felt fully whole and at peace The only time I’m not at peace within myself is when I seriously say within ” I GIVE UP – THIS IS TOO HARD” My CALLING? Put out a 4 Voulume Series – MEMOIR of my 27 YearJourney – My 1st Book done – I’m working on applying my Editor’s suggestions Sorry for the messy writing – thought jumping If anyone wants to contact me – I’m living proof that Journaling works It saved my life / helped me discover my Purpose Simona Adina [email protected] THANK YOU GREAT ARTICLE AND GREAT RESOURCES YOU ARE INSPIRATIONAL
