The Literacy Network of Durham Region is proud to support the bibliotherapy model in Durham Region.  Bibliotherapy uses literature to spark discussion, conversation and reflection in small groups in order to strengthen community connections and personal resilience.  Each group is led by a facilitator who reads poems, prose and other versions of the written word and participants then share their thoughts, feelings and interpretations of the material.  Bibliotherapy is taking place in libraries and agencies across Durham Region – please see below for upcoming dates and registration.

For more information on joining a bibliotherapy group or to discuss using the model in your agency please contact us

Bibliotherapy – Online Programming is supported by the financial support of the Ontario Trillium Ontario Trillium FoundationFoundation.
