Yes, there are poetry and writing therapists, trained and certifed by an organization called NAPT. I am currently working on certificatin through them as well as on a masters/phd in Psychology and Counseling. A published writer, I was seeking a way to integrate writing with the therapeutic environment. It took awhile but I found it. I currently run my own groups for women, children, psychiatric patients, etc and use the written word as the healing source or aid. It is magical! You can email me for more info if you are interested in learning more about this!
