Certification: Certified Applied Poetry Facilitator (CAPF)

1625 Mid Valley Dr. #1, Suite 126 Steamboat Springs, CO 80487

A certified applied poetry facilitator brings to training a unique background, blending love and knowledge of literature and writing with an understanding of basic psychology and group dynamics. Although the CAPF's training is geared to working with healthy populations, the CAPF must be able to recognize the difference between "normalcy" and pathology, and must be able to determine when a distressed individual needs to be referred to a mental health professional.
