Why are some physicians including poetry as part of their treatment of patients?

Because they know people need to participate in their own healing. Intimidating medical terminology and clinical diagnoses can actually get in the way of the relationship between doctors and patients.
fMRI scans show poetry has an immediate impact on the brain. It helps communication by bringing people onto the same page’, and makes the real world feel more manageable and meaningful.
