Bibliotherapy is an old concept in library science. The ancient Greeks maintained that literature was psychologically and spiritually important, posting a sign above their library doors describing itself as a “healing place for the soul.”

The basic concept behind bibliotherapy is that reading is a healing experience. Bibliotherapy can assist adults as they go through the divorce process by reducing their feelings of isolation, helplessness, fear and teaching new ways to problem solve.
