Editor's Note from Susan de Wardt: An empassioned and poignant message from Rachel McKibbens as she describes first her own experience with poetry and mental illness then her work using poetry to inspire self-expression for youths also suffering mental illness diagnoses - and finally the lessons she learned.  Inspiring for anyone who suffers in silence and a useful example for therapists and writers who want to make a difference through poetry.

Writing & Poetry Therapy


by Glynn Young

It was 1996. I was in a bookstore, likely the Barnes & Noble not far from my house. I spotted a small book with an unexpected title: The Heart Aroused : Poetry and the Preservation of the Soul in Corporate America. The author, David Whyte, was a poet. His book wasn’t about how poetry might apply in the workplace, but how critically important poetry was if corporate America was to flourish and succeed...

 

 

 

Writing & Poetry Therapy

I’ve been interested in clutter since the late 1980s when I was in graduate school studying to be a psychotherapist. At the same time that I was learning to look at the world through psychological eyes I was also making my living with a small housecleaning business. That’s when I found out that all kinds of intelligent, interesting, creative people were overwhelmed with daily life and confused about what to keep and what to let go. I wasn’t alone...

 

Editor’s Note from Susan de Wardt: Here’s a practical article that speaks to a topic that confronts so many of us:  what to do with all the ‘stuff’ in our lives! Clutter Consultant Carolyn Koehnline uses writing techniques to clear the mind as you clear your space.


Writing & Poetry Therapy


by Robert C. Jameson, MFT

“Patience? What are you talking about? I don’t have time for patience! I want what I want, and I want it now! In fact, I don’t want it now. I need it now!” Sound familiar? Stuff to do just seems to keep piling up and yet, time just keeps moving.

 

Editor's Note: Need Patience? Grab a pen and some paper instead, start to write about what the air feels like, what sounds surround your ears, and what you see three feet in front of you. Ahhh, that's the present moment.

Writing & Poetry Therapy


by Dawn Herring

I love refreshment, and it can come in all sorts of forms and venues. One of my favorites is journaling; it’s one of the first things I do in the morning to get my day off to a fresh start. I use my a.m. journaling time for Morning Pages, that stream of consciousness approach to letting it all out on the page. It releases angst; helps wrap up loose ends from the previous night, and can help me set my goals for the day...

When looking for healing treatments, do you think of putting pen to paper? Maybe you should! As a proven stress management tool, journaling may be a great resource to add to your arsenal of healing activities. Journaling has been shown to decrease pain and fatigue associated with chronic inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, asthma, fibromyalgia, and diabetes. Journaling also boosts the immune system while improving cognitive function...

 

Editor's Note: Allow yourself to go on a healing journey, grab a journal and start writing!
