About the event

Stronger Together is co-facilitated by Athena McClendon and Kristin Thompson.

This new theme arose in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. 

Using the approach of our effective series, Poetry as a Tool for Wellness, this session demonstrates how poetry can be a channel for strong emotion and help affect positive social change that can make us stronger together.

No experience with poetry or workshops is necessary to attend.

This stand-alone poetry circle explores the benefits of working with others when going through hard times. This one-day program is a wonderful introduction to the style of the the Poetry as a Tool for Wellness series. 

Poetry as a Tool for Wellness (PTW) is a culmination of over 20 years of ground-breaking practice utilizing poetry as a catalyst to enhance skills, affirm strengths, and nurture creativity in order to promote overall wellbeing. Piloted in settings focused on mental health, it has been found equally transformative and roundly received in a much broader context.

PTW is an ideal program for counselors, peer specialists, teachers, chaplains, healthcare/wellness coaches, community activists, support group facilitators, and anyone else interested in fostering a creative and therapeutic approach to wellness through the integration of Poetic Medicine into mental health and wellness programs.
