Episode 51: The Enrichment Approach with Poetic Therapy and Emotional Purging

April 9, 2021

I start with my own joke about equating math and poetry. Then I use a quote from American psychologist Abraham Maslow, about poetry. April is national poetry month. Then I talk about enriched environments with poetics and catharsis.

In this week's RITE OF PASSAGE EXPERIENCES or ROPE, I talk about poetry.  I read two personal  poems that involve emotional rage. One is an internal rage. The other is about the externally purging of emotions.
