Poetry in all its diverse forms here we use it for the following:
- We use poems, stories, song lyrics, imagery, and metaphor to facilitate personal growth, healing.
- We use poetry as a vehicle for the expression of emotions that might otherwise be difficult to express.
- We use poetry to promote self-reflection and exploration, increasing self-awareness and helping individuals make sense of their world.
- We use poetry to help individuals redefine their situation by opening up new ways of perceiving reality
We do this by using receptive/prescriptive, expressive/creative, and symbolic/ceremonial techniques.
