More than 12,000 people have enrolled in Raab’s online courses. Write Heal Transform. As the course title implies, it serves as a hands-on guide to healing and transformation through writing one’s own memoir. The eight-week course consists of eight lessons (one lesson per week) that teach the basics of memoir writing and the ways in which this type of writing cultivates self-awareness and using one’s voice to speak one’s truth. In short, Diana Raab’s course helps wounded healers become storytellers. Her new course, Therapeutic Writing, is an empowering ten-day course guiding and supporting participants in using writing as a therapeutic tool to individual self-exploration.

A unique feature of DailyOM courses is that the price is not fixed, and those interested in taking them can pay what they can afford, starting from as low as $15 up to $50; the same material is available to those taking the course – regardless of what payment option they choose. The course page reads:

We simply trust that people are honest and will support the author of the course with whatever they can afford. And if you are not 100% satisfied, we will refund your money.

When asked about the most important takeaways from her courses, Raab said, “There are a few salient points that I emphasize in all my workshops, whether it’s memoir writing or writing for healing, and whether it’s an in-person or an online course. First, writing is a process.  Second, it’s important to enjoy the process or journey without focusing on the destination (possible publication), because this can detract from the creative aspect. Third, it’s important to write without fear. Writing our personal stories can be scary and daunting. It’s important to drop the fear and just write. As my first writing mentor told me, “Let it rip.”

Product Details
Annabelle has a secret. When she was seven years old, she was approached by a
neighborhood boy and invited into a "secret club". Unfortunately, this club was just a
ruse for thirteen-year-old Joel to groom Annabelle for abuse. A few years later, when
Annabelle turns eleven, she finds some bad feelings have returned for her.


Experts Acclaim for Annabelle's Secret


"Amy Barth's Annabelle could be just the 'friend' a sexually abused child needs, and
it models just what parents should to do if their child shares about sexual abuse. A great
little resource for children, parents, schools, therapists, treatment agencies, and prevention
programs."

--Karen R. Nash, LCSW


" Annabelle's Secret is a well-written and beautifully illustrated book for children that
tells the difficult tale of Annabelle, what happened to her, and what she did to stop the
sexual abuse that she was experiencing. The book is written in a straightforward yet
compelling manner that exposes the excruciating situation that far too many children experience.
This book is a welcome and needed addition to the tools that we have for children
and families and service providers for dealing openly about child sexual abuse."

--Pamela Pine, PhD, MPH, Founder and CEO

Stop the Silence: Stop Child Sexual Abuse, Inc


" Annabelle's Secret supports important issues regarding sexual abuse that may arise
in a young girl's life. Written like a comforting letter from a survivor, the young reader will
become aware of the importance and safety to report any encounters. The book is simply
written and in understandable terms for any 6 to 9-year old. The information is concise,
yet heartening and loving. Annabelle's Secret should be read with a parent present
to encourage dialog about this significant subject."
--Irene Watson, author of
The Sitting Swing: Finding Wisdom to Know the Difference


"Annabelle relates a story that reconfirms what I have observed over many years.
Abused children, male or female, universally believe that it is their fault. Their self-image
is mangled; they need to tell the truth; and they must get help from someone who knows
how to treat such an injury to the soul."

--Fr. Heyward B. Ewart, III, PhD, Author of Am I Bad? Recovering From Abuse
