Papadopoulos, Andrew; Wright, Sue; Harding, Sarah
Journal of Poetry Therapy, v13 n1 p29-37 Fall 1999
Describes a poetry group developed for older adults with functional mental health problems, based at a day hospital in the United Kingdom. Evaluates the group's effectiveness using both quantitative pre and post measures and qualitative feedback. Finds that all group members enjoyed the group, and that its benefits seemed to lie on a continuum from a therapeutic to respite. (SR)
