I know a few poets who I think could use some therapy

November 23, 2008

So begins this weekend’s installment of POETRY HAS A USE-VALUE courtesy of John Lundberg and the Huffington Post.

Turns out that “the word therapy . . comes from the Greek word therapeia meaning to nurse or cure through dance, song, poem and drama.”

Turns out some people call themselves poetry therapists, however

Please note that the only persons authorized to call themselves poetry therapists are those who have fulfilled the training requirements and been awarded, or who are eligible to be awarded, the designation by the Federation for Biblio/Poetry Therapy (formerly NAPT, through its Certification Committee).
