Conversations with a Black Cockatoo : The Poems of 2009-2013 by Kevin Munro

Conversations with a Black Cockatoo: The Poems of 2009-2013 is the final book in a trilogy written over the years when the author’s mother entered the final phase of her life. It includes her illness, death, and the grieving of a son for a much-loved parent.

Author Kevin Munro then uprooted his life and relocated to the Shoalhaven Region on the south coast of New South Wales, Australia. All of this occurred as he recovered from a bipolar breakdown that ended his teaching career. The poetry in this book contains all these issues that evolved as the years unfolded.

This trilogy is not only stirring literature, but is intended as an educational tool to help others. All three of his books contain interactive exercises that allow readers to examine the personal experience of someone with bipolar. These exercises are primarily aimed at tertiary education students training for involvement with mental health. The exercises are rich in group discussion potential and for individual educational needs and settings.
