Bibliotherapy covers a broad spectrum of approaches that help people to take more control of their health and wellbeing. A Bibliotherapy program can be any activity involving print or non-print material, either imaginative or informational, and which is often discussed with the aid of a facilitator, one to one, or in a group format. Bibliotherapy is the creative and practical use of reading, writing, storytelling for well-being and personal development. Books, stories and poems invite readers to explore their inner and outer worlds.
