This documentary tells the stories of patients whose lives have been dramatically changed as a result of Dr. John Graham-Pole and poetry therapist John Fox's incorporation of poetry into their recovery process. At a time when Americans have grown cynical about health-care, this film affirms that poetry and art can build understanding and compassion between doctor and patient and help facilitate healing among the most critically ill.

Comments about PBS Healing Words: Poetry & Medicine DVD:

Thank you for this wonderful documentary. I was diagnosed with breast cancer about six years ago and have been involved in our Art in Medicine Program with great thankfulness.
I am a clinical psychologist of many years experience and it was important for me to become a patient again and one staring death in the face. This is the territory that Carl Jung spent his life exploring - perhaps not realized by many people. This is the territory of LIFE - it's shockingly multivarious perspectives, images and emotions.

This documentary shows the humility and cutting edge of a soulful and medical approach to mysteries of LIFE - not just 'sickness'. It is 'raw' in the sense tht the emergent life is hurtling out of dark canayons.

Thank you so much for this beautiful exploration of themes that actually face everyone.

I would love to be more involved in this deeply human engagement. Have you had thoughts about such 'evolutions'?
Thanks you.
Most sincerely,
Dr.Evangeline RAnd

Wonderful documentary on the healing power of words and patient care.
It is equally beneficial for the doctor and the patient.
