|dc.description.abstract||The publication constitutes a continuation of the previous book by the same
author, Literature and Children’s Therapy. The author reflects on the nature of
the bibliotherapeutic work she engages in as a psychologist and psychotherapist.
She points to the fundamental elements of the bibliotherapeutic process, i.e.
development of a therapeutic relationship, construction of understanding in the
therapeutic process, as well as development of the therapeutic change. The author
emphasises that bibliotherapy, even though centred around the literary text, has
its basis in the therapeutic relationship, and should be, therefore, characterised
by regularity and reliability of the bibliotherapeutic sessions as well as the constancy
regarding the person of the therapist–one who knows and understands the
patient undergoing bibliotherapy. Having established the basic premises regarding
the type of therapy which utilises literature as a therapeutic tool, the author
presents two types of practices: biblio-educational as well as biblio-therapeutic
sensu stricto, aiming to clarify the differences between the them.
The first chapter focuses on thorough discussion of the contemporary branches
of bibliotherapy. The author attempts a subjective overview and assessment
of various texts used in bibliotherapy, including therapeutic tales, children’s
stories, and fairytales. In the second chapter–crucial to understand the essence
of the author’s argument–the author presents three aspects of therapeutic work:
understanding, relationship, and change. The author not only defines and discusses
these aspects, but also emphasises their importance for the overall effectiveness
of therapeutic work. In the third chapter, the author’s focus shifts to the
way in which the general therapeutic guidelines can be applied to bibliotherapy.
Thus, she explains the ways in which understanding, relationship and change all
constitute vital parts of the bibliotherapeutic process. The publication contains
also a practical part–in chapter four, the author proposes the idea of bibliotherapeutic
open workshops. The form of the open workshop is based upon the
principles of intersemiotic translation. This process is explained and presented
in the publication on the basis of a sample outline of such an open workshop,
aimed both at children as well as adults.
The publication is best characterised by its twofold focus: first, on the theoretical
framework of contemporary bibliotherapy; and second, on the practicalapplication of these principles of bibliotherapy, based upon the author’s own
experience in her therapeutic work with patients. The book is recommended to
both those who practice bibliotherapy in their professional capacity, as well as
all those who are simply interested in bibliotherapy.||pl_PL|
