Poetry As Medicine
Imagine your therapist writing a prescription for “Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night” by Dylan Thomas or “Hope is the thing with feathers” by Emily Dickinson or a Shakespeare sonnet — as well as prescribing an anxiety medication. Norman E. Rosenthal MD is that therapist! He was the psychiatrist who first described seasonal affective disorder and pioneered the use of light in its treatment during his twenty years at the National Institute of Mental Health. Dr. Rosenthal is the author of several books and currently maintains a private clinical and coaching practice in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC. His work has earned him national and international attention in the world of psychiatry and psychology, as well as in the media.
