About the Session
This session will explore the current applications of poetry in medical settings via the body of work produced by healthcare providers and patients. Additionally, we'll explore the value of poetic therapy‚ from its American inceptions to its modern-day appropriation by medical schools, clinical facilities, and holistic healing practitioners‚ as well as the methodologies available to anyone interested in self-care and healing.
