There is such controversy surrounding the term, Bibliotherapy. In regards to my workshop of gifted teachers, I plan on using Bibliotherapy in this manner:

  • Teachers and counselors will be given the information about bibliotherapy as a tool. 
  • They will be given access to a several databases/books which would give them materials. 
  • They will be shown how to phrase questions/direct discussion in a bibliotherapeutic manner. 
  • There will be zero certification in bibliotherapy required; the goal is to get gifted teachers to think along bibliotherapeutic lines. 
  • No one will assume bibliotherapy will solve mental health issues by itself, nor will the teachers be responsible for this. It is to help cathartically, makes kids think deeper about their personal issues, and to give them role models/books to identify with.
