Poetry and Story Therapy (Featured Poetry eBook)


Poetry invites readers to a deep engagement on intimate and sometime painful emotions. The most meaningful poetry employs concise carefully selected language to construct images that speak directly to a reader's authentic experiences. Poets paradoxically speak to the universal and personal allowing readers to empathize and connect with others.

Poetry and Story Therapy may benefit those interested in using poetry and story telling in a therapy or counseling setting. The book discusses the art of poetry and how to evaluate and select poems for use in therapy sessions. Careful attention is also given to the needs of different audiences and how to achieve specific therapeutic goals. Included are session examples to guide practitioners through the process. The book is intended for students, professionals, or general readers interested in therapeutic aspects of creative expression.
