Jonietz, Patricia L.
Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Problems, v3 n4 p4-7 Win 1995
By introducing creative writing to preadolescent and adolescent youth in a detention center in Missouri, the program hoped to change their perceptions of their lack of language skills. The leader separated idea generation from mechanical composition. The variety of activities provided opportunities to make each participant feel valued and powerful. (JPS)
