Creative Bridges International – Work and Research with Words for Wellbeing

A collaborative venture between Lapidus International and the Metanoia Institute has resulted in a two-day conference at Engineers House in Bristol on 13th – 14th July 2019.


Creative Bridges International brings together the varied experiences of researchers, practitioners and participants to explore and expand the diversity of Creative Writing for Therapeutic Purposes (CWTP) and words for wellbeing. Drawing from a range of disciplines (literature, counselling & psychotherapy, neuropsychology, medicine, emotional geography, socio-spiritual approaches and more),  Creative Bridges will showcase relevant research and practice, assess the current picture of the international field and find inspiring and robust ways to bring CWTP research and practice to our diverse communities across the globe.
