Poetry is more than just a form of art or expression. It has the power to heal, transform and uplift those who read, perform and create it. Case studies have shown promising results for those who have undergone poetry therapy. One study found that participants with depression reported significant reductions in symptoms after just six sessions of group poetry therapy. Another study showed improvements in self-esteem, coping skills and overall psychological well-being among cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. (Ref - The Journey within).
With its unique blend of creativity and psychology, poetry therapy offers an alternative approach to transform ones mental health.
