Bibliotherapy

Edited by Liz Brewster and Sarah McNicol

Bibliotherapy schemes can now be found in libraries all over the world, from public libraries, through to health/hospital libraries and academic libraries. This book draws on the latest international practical and theoretical developments in bibliotherapy to explore how libraries can best support the health and wellbeing of their communities.

Bibliotherapy encompasses all aspects of ‘bibliotherapy’ in its widest sense, starting with a critical historical overview of bibliotherapy, followed by an explanation of theories or approaches to bibliotherapy. The book explains how various bibliotherapy models work by drawing on practical examples to demonstrate how the theories behind bibliotherapy can be applied in practice.

Case studies include a range of settings (public library, academic library, outpatient, inpatient); populations (including young people, ESOL speakers, psychiatric patients, homeless people, people with dementia/carers); and countries (UK, North America, South America, Australia).

Readership: This book will be useful reading for students and practising library and information professionals across sectors, including health, public, and academic libraries, and those with an interest in wellbeing more generally.
