A Therapeutic Approach to Teaching Poetry: Individual Development, Psychology, and Social Reparation. Psychoanalysis, Education and Social Transformation
Williams, Todd O.
A Therapeutic Approach to Teaching Poetry develops a poetry pedagogy that offers significant benefits to students by helping them to achieve a sense of renewal (a deeper awareness of self and potentials) and reparation (a realistic, but positive and proactive worldview). Todd O. Williams offers a thorough examination of the therapeutic potential of poetry, explaining its personal and social benefits, and providing unique pedagogical strategies derived from poetry therapy and other therapeutic models. In taking this approach, Williams also enlarges the range of interpretive possibilities for the nineteenth-century poetry he treats.
