About the Poetry LAB Training

In this 3-hour live, interactive, and dynamic training, social workers, educators, & other practitioners will learn how to implement The Poetry LAB, a groupwork model in their school or community.

This training is useful for those who work with children or adults in schools and various educational and community settings. This training is especially intended for those who have an interest or experience utilizing group work as a means of providing therapeutic support. Those who work only with individuals will find practical applications as well. This training will focus on a specific model the instructor designed and calls The Poetry LAB.

There is a significant body of research that demonstrates that guided therapeutic writing has a positive impact on physical and mental health. The therapeutic use of writing can include poetry, journaling, songwriting, poetry therapy, and bibliotherapy. Expressive arts therapies (dance, music, poetry, psychodrama) combine psychology and the creative process to promote emotional growth and healing.
