More than ever, people in a position of vulnerability need accessible and efficient care that helps them to grow, learn and change. Sharing the experience of reading powerful stories and poems can be an active power towards that goal. The practice of Shared Reading kicks off a process of change that follows a recurring pattern, in a dynamic cycle of starting, growing, harvesting, learning and relaxing. In small groups, people read literary texts together with a reading companion who reads out loud and asks questions. By talking about the text and reflecting on it, people learn from each other and increase their inner mental-emotional space. By connecting with other people, they experience powerful therapeutic effects, outside the context of regular therapy. Shared Reading. The Ultimate Therapy demonstrates the transformative power of Shared Reading, illustrates it with cases out of day-to-day health care practice and lays out practical advice for those who want to get started themselves.
