WHY POETRY COMES IN SEARCH OF US
  • PABLO NERUDAS POEM POETRY
  • POETIC LANGUAGE CAN REVEAL DEEPEN WHAT WE FEEL,
    VIA PARADOX, METAPHOR, IMAGERY
  • PERMISSION TO PLAY
  • SURPRISES US BY SAYING THE UNSPEAKABLE
  • RAISES QUESTIONS WITHOUT ANSWERS BUT GIVES US NEW
    WAYS TO THINK
  • ALLOWS US TO KNOW WHAT WE DIDNT KNOW BEFORE WE
    BEGAN TO WRITE

6
WHAT IS POETRY THERAPY?
  • INTENTIONAL USE OF LITERATURE TO EVOKE FEELINGS
  • CHOSEN ON THE BASIS OF WHERE THE THERAPIST THINKS
    THE STUDENT OR CLIENT IS
  • OR CHOSEN TO HELP THE PERSON TOWARD NEW
    REALIZATIONS
  • A BASIS FOR TALKING IN A CLASS OR IN A SESSION
  • CASE STUDIES INVITE ANALYSIS POEMS EVOKE FEELINGS

7
POETRY AS A TECHNIQUE
  • THE GOAL IS TO MAKE AN IMPACT ON A LIFE (GOAL OF
    ALL TECHNIQUES)
  • A POEM IS ANOTHER PERSON IN THE GROUP
  • THAT PERSON IS NON-THREATENING BECAUSE HE OR SHE
    IS DISTANT PHYSICALLY BUT IS PRESENT EMOTIONALLY
  • ON THE OTHER HAND, THE EMOTIONAL PRESENCE CAN
    HAVE FAR GREATER INFLUENCE THAN THE PHYSICAL

8
POETRY INVITES A QUICKER RESPONSE
  • ABSTRACT POETRY DOES NOT WORK
  • BE SPECIFIC TO BE EFFECTIVE
  • PEOPLE WILL SURPRISE THEMSELVES BY LETTING THE
    LANGUAGE CONNECT THEM TO OTHERS
  • AND CONNECT TO THEMSELVES

9
THE WRITTEN WORD
  • IN DEFENSE OF POETRY (1840) SHELLEY WROTE THAT
    EVERY AUTHOR IS NECESSARILY A POET, BECAUSE
    LANGUAGE ITSELF IS POETRY.
  • SHELLEY FOUND THE DISTINGUISHING ELEMENT OF
    POETRY IN ITS POWER TO REVEAL AND ILLUMINATE.

10
WORDSWORTH
  • THE SPONTANEOUS OVERFLOW OF FEELINGS
  • POETRY OF VALUE REQUIRES THE POET TO THINK LONG
    AND DEEPLY.

11
ROMANTIC MOVEMENT
  • CONCERN FOR THE HUMAN LIFEWORLD FEATURING
  • 1)AFFECT, IMAGINATION, AND INTUITION
  • 2)HOLISTIC CONTENT
  • 3)PRACTITIONER (INVESTIGATOR) AS PARTICIPANT
  • GERGEN (1994) NOTED THAT FROM A ROMANTICIST
    STANDPOINT, TO UNDERSTAND ANOTHER IS TO
    EXPERIENCE IN THE SAME MANNER, THE OTHERS
    SUBJECTIVITY.

12
POETRY THERAPY
  • POETRY THERAPY REFLECTS THE CLASSIC ISSUES IN
    LITERARY ANALYSIS AND PSYCHOLOGICAL PRACTICE THE
    ROMANTIC ASPECTS OF EMPATHY AND SUBJECTIVITY VS.
    REASON AND OBSERVATION.

13
FOCUS ON CLIENT
  • LERNER (1987) STATED THAT IN POETRY THERAPY THE
    FOCUS IS ON THE PERSON NOT THE POEM. CLIENTS ARE
    NOT ASKED TO INDENTIFY THE TRUE MEANING OF A
    POEM, BUT RATHER THE PERSONAL MEANING.

14
HISTORICAL FOUNDATIONS

    OFTEN BEEN REFERRED TO AS A STARTING POINT FOR

    ASPECT OF PSYCHOTHERAPY, ONE OF THE THERAPEUTIC
    FACTORS IN GROUP PSYCHOLOGY, AND A CENTRAL
    COMPONENT OF PSYCHODRAMA

16
HISTORICAL FOUNDATIONS
  • BLINDERMAN (1973) TRACED THE USE OF POETRY TO
    DEAL WITH EMOTIONAL PROBLEMS EVEN FURTHER IN
    HISTORY TO PRELITERATE TIMES WHEN INCANTATIONS
    AND INVOCATIONS WERE USED.
  • OFTEN THE PURPOSE OF THE CHANTED WORD WAS TO
    BRING ABOUT CHANGE IN SELF, OTHERS, OR THE
    ENVIRONMENT.

17
HISTORICAL FOUNDATIONS AMERICAN INDIANS
  • ON THE AMERICAN INDIAN, ASTROV (1962, P.207)
    NOTED THE POWER OF THE WORD IT IS NOT THE HERB
    ADMINISTERED TO THE SICK WHICH IS CONSIDERED THE
    ESSENTIAL PART OF THE CURE, RATHER THE WORDS
    RECITED OVER THE HERB BEFORE ITS USE.
