Course Description

Unfortunately, stressful life experiences, such as loss or bereavement, the divorce of parents, anger, fear, bullying, and feeling diverse or excluded, can enter the life of pupils and students.

Aiming at the development of the person as a whole rather than at mere academic success, schools are naturally prone to help but sometimes lack the means for doing it with care and respect of their primary educational mission.

This course offers a solution based on the therapeutic role of literature, which is the basis of bibliotherapy.

Bibliotherapy is the activity of using literature to grow towards good emotional health. Offering a responsive interaction with literature, bibliotherapy can assist young people with the challenges of development.

It can also offer support in relieving stress, providing successful coping strategies, and helping an individual to express both feelings and ideas about a problem or difficulty.

Through practical and experiential activities, course participants will understand the concept of bibliotherapy and its uses. They will deepen their knowledge of the therapeutic role of literature and its importance in the mental, emotional and social development of children. Moreover, they will learn about the teacher’s role in implementing bibliotherapy in the classroom and gain practice in it.

Each participant will learn how to develop complete lesson plans and implement bibliotherapy activities on selected children’s books that best fit their unique school community.

Through workshops and hands-on activities, as well as reflection and sharing, participants will prepare their own reading activities in a highly interactive and engaging learning experience.

By the end of the course, participants will have advanced their first steps in a new dimension for a better health and care of their learners.
