Episode 53: The Enrichment Approach with Poetic Therapy and Superman

April 24, 2021

I start with my own joke about Superman. Then I use a quote from Superman actor, Christopher Reeve. April is national poetry month. Then I talk about enriched environments with comic book catharsis. April 28 is also National Superhero Day. 

In this week's RITE OF PASSAGE EXPERIENCES or ROPE, I talk about Superman-based poetry.  I read two personal poems that involve complex choices and disabilities.
