Where and How is Poetry Therapy Used?
Could you or the population that you serve benefit from the healing power of words? Poetry therapy is one of the Expressive Arts Therapies, which include art, music, drama, psychodrama and dance therapy. We would like to extend to you the services of NAPT's trained poetry therapists. Pleasedownload our Integrative Medicine Packet (PDF), which details how poetry therapy is used with various populations.

About the National Association for Poetry Therapy
For the past 30 years, NAPT...

...members have forged a community of healers and lovers of words and language. We are psychotherapists, counselors, psychologists, social workers, and psychiatrists. We are poets, journal keepers, storytellers, and songwriters. We are teachers, librarians, adult educators, and university professors. We are doctors, nurses, occupational/ recreational therapists; ministers, pastoral counselors, and spiritual directors. We are artists, dancers, dramatists, musicians, and writers.

We work in many settings where people deal with personal and communal pain and the search for growth. As poetry therapists, we use all forms of literature and the language arts, and we are united by our love of words, and our passion for enhancing the lives of others and ourselves.

The Give The Gift Of Music campaign originated some 30 years ago to communicate the simple, yet effective message to consumers that music is a particular means of personal expression, thoughtfulness and consideration when given as a gift to a friend or a loved one.
In March 2010, the music-gifting promotional program got a fresh look with a new logo and a branded web site which features music-gifting memory videos from over 70 artists as well as written memories from hundreds of music fans and cool gifting ideas for your favorite music fans. Visit us at
