Bibliotherapy and its Potential in Public Libraries


About This Session:

Bibliotherapy is a therapy modality that involves storytelling or reading with the purpose of healing. This webinar will explore Bibliotherapy: what it is, who is using it, how it is developing, its potential and relevance to public librarianship in Canada (with a focus on youth services), what it might look like in practice, and what tools/support might be needed to stimulate and bolster its practice in public libraries.

Learning Goals:

- An understanding and awareness of Bibliotherapy

- Exposure to resources to guide self-training

- Building an informal network to develop this practice with other librarians

- Grasping the language to facilitate discussion of the practice and its potential at your library.
