Poetry, Healing, and the Latin American Battered Woman.
Booker, Marja
Journal of Poetry Therapy, v13 n2 p73-79 Win 1999
Explores how poetry can be used in support groups as an adjunctive treatment technique to empower and to raise consciousness of Latina battered women. Offers examples of Latin American women's literary works to demonstrate the connections poetry has to everyday lives, and how Latina spouse-abuse survivors can gain a deeper understanding of themselves and recover their voice through poetic expression.
