The National Association for Poetry Therapy (NAPT) promotes growth and healing through language and story. NAPT is an energetic, world-wide community of poets, writers, journal keepers, helping professionals, health care professionals, educators, and lovers of words who recognize and appreciate the healing power of language. Poetry therapists work in mental health, medical, geriatric, therapeutic, educational and community settings. The term "poetry therapy" encompasses bibliotherapy (the interactive use of literature) and journal therapy (the use of life-based reflective writing) as well as therapeutic storytelling, the use of film in therapy, and other language-based healing modalities. http://www.poetrytherapy.org twitter: Napt@Poetry_Therapy https://www.facebook.com/pages/National-Association-for-Poetry-Therapy/287547707929872
