What is Biblio-Therapy?

I love Biblio-therapy! Biblio-Therapy is when a story is used to generate conversation in therapy. Books used in Biblio-Therapy are specifically chosen by the therapist for their content.

Biblio-Therapy pairs perfectly with Play Therapy! It is often easier for children to talk about and or play out parts of a story from the book character’s perspective.

As a Play Therapist, I enjoy using Biblio-Therapy to approach ideas and or concepts with my clients. Using Biblio-Therapy allows the client to be open to the idea from the perspective of the character, without fear of blame, shame or guilt. Biblio-Therapy can also reduce feelings of isolation, or difference.
