The Power of Poetry as Therapy
Both writing and reading poetry, through their expression of feelings and words have highly therapeutic effects on the mind.
We are often drawn to a poem when we connect with the poet’s feelings, either feeling the same as the poet or empathising with him/her.
This literary guide explores the creative ways in which we can read and write poetry for self-therapy. It also includes books to help you access the full therapeutic power of poetry.
