Discover How Poetry Therapy Reduces Stress

home » singlebook details


While statistics are not available for the numbers of couples faced with a life-threatening disease, one thing is certain: what starts out as an attraction and matures into love and shared experience, often falls apart when subjected to the stress of a partner's serious illness.

Steve Jaffe has been there. The discovery that he had heart disease and the ensuing quadruple bypass became compounded by his wife's diagnosis with breast cancer, all within a year of each other.

According to Jaffe, journaling, particularly in the form of rhythm poetry, saved his life. It allowed him introspection, engendered growth, and thereby provided the means for him to cope with the stress of life-altering changes.

Encouraging couples to journal through their problems together is at the heart of Jaffe's book, A Recipe for Healing, Coming Together As A Team. Using rhythm poems throughout the book to inspirer written responses from his readers, Jaffe take his readers to a place where they can let emotions flow freely and safely onto paper, serving as both a catharsis and a release. A Recipe for Healing is an invaluable tool for couples facing life-altering changes.
