NAPT Invitation to Attend Virtual Workshops
We were looking forward to seeing everyone in person at the NAPT conference in Albuquerque that had to be canceled due to COVID-19. For this reason, and because many need to earn Peer Hours and/or CEU's for professional licenses, NAPT will begin offering virtual workshops. These will be facilitated by credentialed and experienced NAPT members. We invite you to check out the schedule of workshops that will be offered within the next few weeks at a special discount. Since it is National Poetry Month in April, of course we wanted to do something special during this most difficult time of social isolation. Please go to our Virtual Workshops page and you will find a multitude of healing workshops scheduled during morning, afternoon and evening times to suit your schedule. We hope you will join us on Zoom and participate in these workshops.
NAPT Addresses Social Justice
The long history of racial injustice is spreading rapidly, and it must be eradicated. Black lives matter, wellness, and success belong to everyone. We must take action right now.
NAPT's regional reps help by disseminating information on the richly varied field of poetry/bibliotherapy by networking with individuals, organizations and/or institutions that are engaged in the areas of education, mental health, health care, creative arts expression, spiritual development, and/or social justice advocacy.
Established to promote projects that benefit, uplift and support the development of adolescents and young adults and is given to recognize, support and deepen the continuing endeavors of a poetry therapist or poetry facilitator working with young people. The award honors the memory of Christopher J. Mazza (May 13, 1984-Nov 1, 2005), a kind and loving young man with an unconquerable spirit.
