Professional counseling costs upwards of $200/hour. Most people can’t afford those rates. What is needed in this field of helping to heal those of traumatic events is affordable options.
Welcome to Bibliotherapy!
Bibliotherapy (reading books that help you get past the trauma, grief, and low self-esteem) is also referred to as poetry therapy or therapeutic storytelling. It’s a program geared towards teenagers and adults who read shocking truths by others who’ve broken the chains of controlling relationships or groups.
This is immediate and has fast results because the victim can clearly see that he/she is not the only one. It helps relieve the guilt factor, which so many fall preys too. The victim starts to see that they were a target…not a failure!
Many people’s lives change for the better from just the first book! Yes! It’s that powerful! This isn’t for everyone; some people have experienced a deeper betrayal and require more care.
However, most people find this route very productive and rewarding. To many; it’s like learning the truth for the first time! Here’s how this program works.
If you have experienced abuse, trauma and it is affecting your life greatly and need support in your healing. If you can afford to purchase books on your own, or you’re caring for a child who has experienced abuse or trauma and are helping them, we offer a care package of books from our “Recommended Reading” list.

Although we realize most people can go to their local library and check out books to help them through these times, but these situations often take months or even years to process and heal from and it’s often nice to have a library of your own to references at any time.
Bibliotherapy uses creative arts that involve storytelling and reading specific texts that cultivate healing.
It has been shown time and time again, that just providing the knowledge to people who have been involved in dark situations is often all they need to get back into a stable place …a peaceful place.
