Bibliotherapy. An Annotated Bibliography.
Riggs, Corinne W., Comp.
This annotated bibliography on bibliotherapy is an updated version of the 1967 International Reading Association publication of the same title (RE 001 384). It contains 165 citations ranging in date from 1936 to 1970. Its subject, bibliotherapy, is based on the belief that individuals are affected by what they read and that materials selected especially for individuals can profitably influence their attitudes and behavior. Listings are arranged alphabetically according to author under the general divisions of books, periodicals, and unpublished materials. Entries pertaining to the reader, the reading material, and the response of the reader are included. Research reports are emphasized, and items relating to specific books and techniques for use in bibliotherapy are provided. (MS)
