Bibliotherapy: Book Reviews & Resources
Welcome to the Bibliotherapy Education Project.

Welcome to the Bibliotherapy Education Project © website.

          At its most basic level, Bibliotherapy means helping through books. Bibliotherapy can be used by different types of helpers with many different ages and concerns. One useful distinction is the following~

  • Clinical Bibliotherapy is implemented by trained helping professionals dealing with significant emotional or behavioral problems

  • Developmental Bibliotherapy may be used by teachers, librarians or lay helpers to facilitate normal development and self-actualization with an essentially healthy population

This site has tools, resources and links to assist you in:

  • Evaluating materials for bibliotherapy work with children and adolescents.
  • Finding evaluated books for certain age groups and issues.
  • Learning more about the use of books in therapy.
