Training Guide

The 2021 IFBPT Guide to Training Requirements in Biblio/Poetry Therapy (the Training Guide) is a must-have book if you are considering becoming a credentialed poetry therapist or applied poetry facilitator.

This guide spells out the fundamental components of the training program for certified applied poetry facilitators and certified or registered poetry therapists. It includes templates for the initial training plan and the final application.

In addition, the guidebook provides samples of the required documentation in the training process, a roster of approved mentor/supervisors and an essential bibliography for the poetry therapy scholar.

The Training Guide is available in electronic format only and is free of charge.
