#LISprochat lead-in - topic & questions for Mon Apr 16 2018 - 8:30pm ET

via PXhere

TOPIC

Bibliotherapy and Libraries


I just finished a 2-week workshop on bibliotherapy in relationships, and I really learned a lot and felt like it was a valuable experience. I feel like it's a good topic to discuss how bibliotherapy and libraries can go together and I have found several resources related to that topic for everyone to look at:

The ALA Bibliotherapy resource page
Bibliotherapy in a Library Setting: Reaching out to Vulnerable Youth by Natalia Tukhareli in the Partnership journal
Readers’ Advisory, Bibliotherapy, and Grief in YA Literature by Sarah Carnahan at YALSA's The Hub
The Bibliotherapy and Libraries website
On Bibliotherapy by Keren Dali on NoveList


PLEASE REMEMBER THAT WE'VE CHANGED THE TIME TO 8:30PM ET!



While you're here please consider checking out our new feature for 2018: #LISPROCHAT Reads, our professional development book club. The next book club session will be running next Monday, April 30, at 8:30 pm ET.


QUESTIONS


We post the questions here in advance of the chat so you can decide whether or not this topic is of interest to you and/or prepare your answers in advance.

Q1 Have you ever heard the term bibliotherapy? Have you had any experiences with this concept?

Q2 What is your understanding of the difference(s) between bibliotherapy and readers advisory?

Q3 s a library professional have you ever been asked for a book recommendation in a way that veered more into the bibliotherapy realm than the readers' advisory realm? How did you handle it?

Q4 Do you think bibliotherapy has a place in libraries? Do you think it's a realm we as library professionals should be looking to develop our skills in?
