'While the healing value of poetry is undeniable, its clinical applications have tended to be ignored, uncharted, and underestimated-until now. In this remarkable volume, Nicholas Mazza shows convincingly how metaphor, imagery, and language can assuage the thorniest ills, and ameliorate the most surprising forms of dysfunction. Poetry Therapy belongs on every sensitive clinician's desk!' - Kirk J. Schneider , Ph.D., Senior Editor, Handbook of Humanistic Psychology; President, Existential-Humanistic Institute
'Dr. Nicholas Mazza's landmark book on poetry therapy, is a beautifully written and conceived work that is an invaluable guide to sophisticated clinical practitioners who recognized the power of the written word and its potential for healing; its appearance is an occasion for celebration.' - George S. Getzel, D.S.W., Professor Emeritus, Hunter College of the City University of New York
