The Poetry LAB Model

I had a great opportunity to speak with Valeria of the Fit for Joy Podcast about The Poetry LAB model I created in St. Paul Public Schools in 2004.  The program existed for 11 years in St. Paul Public Schools.  

Since then, I have written the curriculum, created materials, and started offering training on how to implement The Poetry LAB model in their settings with youth. 

Enjoy a sweet animated snippet of my recent conversation with Valeria below.
I appreciated the opportunity to talk about the therapeutic use of poetry in my work with youth/adults.
