Bruneau, Laura; Bubenzer, Donald L.; McGlothlin, Jason M.
Journal of Humanistic Counseling, Education and Development, v49 n2 p217-230 Fall 2010
The helpfulness of self-help reading was explored through interviews with 6 female self-help readers. Themes derived through phenomenological data analysis suggested that there is a distinct structure to the self-help reading experience, including self-help reading as a medium for revisioning of self. Implications for counseling practice and research are provided. (Contains 1 figure.)
