Tara Broderick was certified as a Practitioner of Poetic Medicine in 2018 after completing a three-year training program sponsored by The Institute for Poetic Medicine (IPM). In 2014, Tara was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. During her IPM training, Tara experienced first-hand the healing power of poem-making to make sense of her diagnosis.
To this day, Tara believes that reading and writing poetry has not only helped her gain perspective but has also contributed to stress reduction and slower progression of her disease. Tara offered this program in 2022 to a group of poets affiliated with TheQuiver.org. Tara lives in Cleveland Ohio where she has facilitated a variety of healing poetry circles since 2017.
