The Poetry LAB Training​

The Poetry LAB: Enjoy this video from my work in St. Paul Public Schools when I was directing The (Poetry) LAB, and arts & wellness-based program of St. Paul Public Schools for middle school and high school students. Learn moe about the three-hour Poetry LAB training & curriculum.

This live training introduces The Poetry LAB, a groupwork model integrating therapeutic writing techniques, beneficial for social workers, educators, and practitioners working in diverse settings, emphasizing its efficacy in promoting emotional growth and healing.

Mary will provide a 3-hour in-person training experience to learn about and how to implement and facilitate The Poetry LAB in your school or community.

What do past clients say about Think in Possibilities?

I often find myself using activities or practices from my time at The LAB when planning team and staff meetings and in my day-to-day work. Your approach to engaging teams and creating spaces where people feel valued and heard has always stuck with me, and I am constantly striving to foster team dynamics that make me feel as welcome as I felt at The LAB. I just wanted to say thank you for inspiring my journey to become a social worker and for the continued inspiration you provide me each day as I carry that experience with me in my work and life.

Let’s work together!

Think in Possibilities stands for the work of transformation and well-being: yours & for those you encounter in your work, relationships, community.

If you are committed to your social work career, professional development, self-care, and personal growth, then you are in the right place. Think In Possibilities is a space of encouragement and inspiration to think outside of the proverbial box – and think, instead, in possibilities – in all the areas of your life.
