Since 2014, writers Imogen Lycett Green and Barbara Doherty have pioneered the use of poetry in Narrative Workshops at the Brighton Health & Wellbeing centre, an integrated NHS practice in East Sussex. Reading, discussion and expressive writing in response to poetry have been proven to increase emotionaland physical resilience. Narrative Workshops help people who are grieving; people suffering from anxiety, depression or related disorders; people suffering from stress. At BHWC, Imogen and Barbara work with patients but also, due to popular demand, with groups of doctors and nurses. As well as being interesting and fun, Narrative Workshops reduce burn out!
