A complete guide to more than 300 of the best reading resources for use in your practice
Bibliotherapy can be a valuable adjunct to virtually any psychotherapeutic approach. Recommending books that focus on your clients' core problem issues helps them see that they are not alone in their suffering. It also may help them more rapidly gain insight and a more realistic sense of control regarding their situation. And, by extending the therapeutic process beyond the therapist's office, bibliotherapy functions as a valuable cost-containment strategy.
But, with thousands of self-help titles to choose from, how do you separate the wheat from the chaff and find the best match between client and book?

* A concise synopsis detailing the book's main subject area and its author's approach
* A description of the three major client groups for whom the book is appropriate
