Bibliotherapy In Counseling

Bibliotherapy for Therapy

Rationale: I cannot imagine not using books in my sessions with children and many therapists miss out on this valuable tool.

Bibliotherapy has been used in therapy in many different settings.

There are some wonderful books out there that address every feeling including depression, divorce, anxiety, death, bullies, self-esteem, friendship issues, etc.

I find that bibliotherapy helps children work through many different issues and can be a beneficial way to help children problem solve and overcome emotional issues.

Sometimes, it is helpful to have another “voice” or “perspective” in therapy other than yours. Bibliotherapy helps the therapist by showing the client another perspective.

Your Bibliotherapy Books


1. Find and utilize bibliotherapy books by choosing titles that relate to the issue the child is dealing with.

2. It is best to have the parent or therapist read the book first without the child present.

Then, the parent or therapist can make adjustments with what pages in the book would be most beneficial to the child.

3. Bibliotherapy can be a great starting point for a session or the ending of a session, especially if you are e a new therapist or the topic is uncomfortable. Let the “book” break the ice.

4. Therapist can also gather bibliotherapy books to recommend and/or check out to parents to take home and read to their children.

Play therapist especially need to be aware of what type of bibliotherapy books are out there for children .

They also need to be able to utilize them in session, or offer either the title or actual book to the child’s caretakers.

Parents expect the therapist to know and recommend books and books on a certain topics.

5. Bibliotherapy books need to be part of any play room or therapists office.

Therapist need to keep lists of what books to recommend to parents and have quick access to this list when suggesting books to parents.

Parents may need additional support by reading bibliotherapy books that help them understand their child’s mental health issue .
