Bibliotherapy

 

Bibliotherapy is the use of selected reading materials as therapeutic adjuvants, improving consumers' knowledge about their health conditions and about healthy living and promoting empowerment and self-esteem. Bibliotherapy has been shown in several clinical studies to be as important for health as other therapies like medication.

To promote health literacy and personal empowerment for people with health conditions or disabilities who have limited financial means, ABILITY Awareness has created a bibliotherapy program to distribute health, technology and human interest materials relevant to people with disabilities.

With the donation of magazines by ABILITY Magazine, the bibliotherapy program provides free materials to other nonprofits that work with individuals who have disabilities.
