Practices for Well-Being: The Poetry LAB

In these last few months, I have been focused on bringing The Poetry LAB curriculum, youth writer’s journals, Poetry Prompt Decks, and training opportunities for group facilitators to life.

Recently, I had a great opportunity to speak with Valeria of the Fit for Joy Podcast about my own healing path to well-being and how therapeutic writing, journaling, and poetry have been integral to my life. We talked about my social work practice and how I employ the therapeutic use of poetry in my work with youth (and adults).

Enjoy a sweet animated snippet of my recent conversation with Valeria below.
