Welcome to Poetry Rx
Dr. Norman Rosenthal, is the world renowned researcher who coined the term Seasonal Affective Disorder and pioneered the use of light therapy for its treatment. He is a best-selling author and has an active psychiatry and coaching practice. Dr. Rosenthal is now suggesting the use of POETRY as a means of healing, inspiring and bringing joy to your life.
Welcome to my new web-based initiative about poetry and healing. Many people find poetry delightful, interesting and thought-provoking — and I hope the poems I include will evoke all of those responses – but in this venture I plan to go further. In my personal and professional experience, poetry also has the power to comfort, soothe, inspire and, yes, even heal. In addition, poetry can act as a lens through which we can gaze into the parallel processes of mind and brain and experience treasures that might otherwise be entirely hidden.
Dr. Rosenthal invites you to join him in this 1 minute welcome video
