Professional counseling costs upwards of $60 to $150 per hour and in many cases if one does not have insurance they are financially unable to seek professional counseling to help in the recovery and healing process.
We believe that Bibliotherapy is an effective, affordable and accessible modality that anyone can use to help themselves overcome their struggles.
Wikipedia: “Bibliotherapy (also referred to as poetry therapy or therapeutic storytelling) is a creative arts therapies modality that involves storytelling or the reading of specific texts with the purpose of healing. It uses an individual’s relationship to the content of books and poetry and other written words as therapy.”
We are very excited about our Books for Therapy Program.
Here’s how it works. If you have experienced abuse and trauma and it is effecting your life greatly and you can not afford professional counseling, nor can you afford to purchase books on your own, or you’re caring for a child who has experienced abuse and trauma and are helping them, we offer a care package -a set of 3 books to those who apply and qualify. In the application please include the 3 books you would like from the list provided below on this page.
* We have a lot of people applying for this program who are in need of real help and healing who just can not afford professional therapy and are financially distraught. If you can afford these books on your own please be considerate and do not apply.
If you would like to donate to this program and help others through our Books for Therapy Program it is greatly appreciated and you can do so here.
