Let this poem be a hand upon your shoulder – poetry therapy works
In times of crisis and uncertainty, poetry can bring comfort and healing.
'Let this poem be a hand upon your shoulder', consists of a series of workshops that can help you explore complex feelings, and build your resilience as you connect with others in these challenging times.
The theme for the workshops was inspired by a poem written by Deborah Cooper.
We will use carefully selected poems as a springboard for writing, reflection and dialogue.
The workshops are for anyone who wants additional resources, in these unsettling times. It is for those who enjoy creativity, journaling, writing for personal or professional development.
No prior knowledge of poetry or expressive writing is required; you simply need to share, reflect and experiment with words in a supportive environment.
