About the Book
Fe-Vers: Feeling Verses for Teens and its counterpart, Fe-Vers: Feeling Verses for Children, are two workbooks from award-winning author and celebrated poet Cynthia Gustavson’s In-Versing Your Life series. In these workbooks, she has outlined a new method for working with children and teens through poetry. These workbooks provide a creative world of poetry and exercises that draw children and teens out of their shells and into a sphere of understanding. Her own poetry inspires the children of abuse, neglect, depression, and angst to express themselves freely and clearly.
Perfect for therapists, parents, teachers and more, this guidebook to working with teens will throw new light on the entire practice of teaching and counseling. From the introduction to Fe-Vers: Feeling Verses for Teens:
“Poetry is consistently used by children and teens to express deeply held feelings that are not allowed to come out any other way. The writing of poetry, so often relegated to the MUSE within us, is actually our unconscious understandings, coming out in the rhythm and music of words, especially in metaphor.” — Cynthia Gustavson
