BiblioTHERAPY is designed to help you find books on subjects that will further your relationships, better explain diagnostic concepts or explore therapeutic subjects you might have been thinking about.  If you do not know where to start, choose “Subjects" on the left and away you will go through the virtual bookstore.

TIP: Many programs require participants to read particular books as a therapeutic anchor for group discussions; others recommend individual books for particular instances.  Often, therapists recommend families read the same books as the client.
