Studies show that people who read a lot tend to empathize better with others.
A book can support us more than once.
Another benefit of bibliotherapy is that the books we read can provide us with language that we need to voice our feelings
What is truly liberating in bibliotherapy is the fact that reading books helps us externalise our problems
Another aspect of bibliotherapy that can be healing is building an emotional connection with book characters and plots
What helps the healing process or the process of finding solutions to our challenges is literary thinking
It is possible to have a therapeutic book prescription.
It may sound simple at first: books supporting healing, how does it really work?
This month we are celebrating #WorldBookDay, so we are bringing in a therapeutic approach called bibliotherapy.
