Dahlia Lorenz, Ph.D., is the founder and researcher of the “CIPT Flower model” of Creative Interactive Poetry Therapy for groups in multi-cultural settings. She has lead and taught about poetry therapy groups for many years, and has been involved with psychology counseling in education. She believes in the magic of natural poetry writing as part of the school curriculum as a vehicle to promote well-being, that is, more acceptance and self-confidence, less violence, and more motivation for learning. Dahlia’s book, "Mishelly" Creative Poetry Therapy (2000), and articles demonstrate the benefit of creative poetry writing to the well-being of the writers. She received the highest award from the Israel Counseling Association (2001) for leading educational counseling in Israel. She taught Poetry Therapy at Haifa University and Derby University and Tel Aviv to students, who, in turn, work with children in different Arabic and Jewish schools. She works with Jews and Arabs in mixed groups.
Articles and books in Hebrew and English based on years of running groups and workshops for children and adults - gifted kids, special education, students, parenting school, etc.
