The Effect of Bibliotherapy on Personal and Social Development of Second Graders.
A study examined the effect of bibliotherapy on the personal and social development of second grade students in a self-contained classroom. Students were pretested with the California Test of Personality (CTP), primary series, then were read to from books chosen on the basis of weaknesses exhibited by the children on the test. Books were read to the children each day for 12 weeks, and each reading session was followed by a group discussion. The CTP was administered as a posttest in the 13th week. Results indicated that the bibliotherapy had significant, positive effects on the social and personal development of the subjects. (A list of books used in the bibliotherapy sessions is appended.)
