POETRY & BIBLIOTHERAPY
"There is a place where you will find that you are not alone, that your story is not the only story. That we are all part of the same verse, the universe of words. That poetry heals and makes us whole. Come, we’ve been waiting for you." - Richard Brown
Poetry & Bibliotherapy is the use of language, symbol, and story in therapeutic, educational, growth, and community-building capacities. It relies upon the use of poems, stories, song lyrics, imagery, and metaphor to facilitate personal growth, healing, and greater self-awareness. Bibliotherapy, narrative, journal writing, metaphor, storytelling, and ritual are all within the realm of poetry therapy.
