  • Distinguish between cathartic writing and writing for reflection, insight and problemsolving

STORIES

  • Understand the importance of polyphony in expanding narratives
  • Identify archetypes that are driving the life story
  • Collaborate with your client to create a new narrative
  • Use teaching tales for insight and new learning

POEMS

  • Collect powerful poetry prescriptions for immediate clinical use
  • Apply the “isoprinciple” and principle of opposites for emotional change
  • Understand how metaphor is a catalyst for whole brain learning
  • Share published literature and initiate dynamic, meaningful dialogue

    • Mental imagery
    • Rhythm and breath
    • Clusters, lists, sentence stems and pantoums
    • Haiku
    • Hypnotic words and mantras

TRAUMA

  • Anchor clients with emotional stability and flexibility:
    • Gentle, concrete journaling techniques for calming and centering
    • Creative visualizations to relax and focus
