Lapidus Scotland is an independently constituted voluntary association and is managed by a committee who have skills and experience in facilitating words for wellbeing. We are affiliated to Lapidus International, a membership organisation, and adhere to the same ethical code.
Since 1996 Lapidus Scotland has looked to explore and expand knowledge and understanding of the value of words. We have worked with people, groups and organisations across Scotland, offering reading and writing activities to promote health and wellbeing (often referred to as ‘bibliotherapy’).
Our programmes offer a creative approach to supporting self-management of long-term conditions and can e.g. help with mild to moderate depression, isolation, dementia, recovery from stroke and other illnesses that impact on individual identity. Our facilitators work with statutory and voluntary organisations across a range of settings. We also offer networking and training events for wellbeing practitioners.
