Mon, January 25, 2016

through Fri, March 18, 2016

A Taos Institute Online Workshop

Dates: January 25 – March 18, 2016 (an 8-week Online Workshop)
Rich Furman, MSW, Ph.D.

This eight-week online workshop is designed to empower scholars and doctoral students to increase their ability to write and publish. It adopts a strengths-based, developmental approach that deconstructs evidence-based strategies unknown to most scholars. Conducted by an internationally known writing coach, therapist and professor, participants personalize lessons to meet their scholarly goals and dreams through writing exercises, on-line discussions, weekly group conference calls and video lectures. This workshop helps participants master skills and knowledge within four domains:

  1. Writing productivity
  2. The ins and outs of writing articles, books and dissertations
  3. Managing the journal selection, submission and peer review processes
  4. The psychosocial barriers that inhibit these three other domains. This last area is a special focus and expertise of the facilitator and makes this course a unique and fulfilling experience.


  1. Master methods of writing productivity.
  2. Make significant progress on longer projects (books and dissertations), or complete and submit an academic article.
  3. Develop tools for breaking through personal blocks and barriers that hinder writing productivity and scholarly success.
  4. Develop life-long and regular practices for successful writing
