Description:
The therapeutic value of reading has long been recognised and is formalised through bibliotherapy. Bibliotherapy can be defined as “the use of reading matter for therapeutic purposes in the treatment of nervous disorders” (O.E.D.) but the term can apply to a wider range of reading materials than this definition implies and is used to denote any form of directed reading which may serve a therapeutic purpose.
