Why our books will help your children!
Bibliotherapy generally includes books or stories with characters facing a dilemma similar to the reader, realistic elements such as plot and character, a model for problem solving, and opportunities for sharing the story through discussion or an activity.
At the 2013 Annual Meeting of the American Sociological Association, Jennifer Davis Bowman discussed the experiences of parents concerned with their children’s social behavior. She said that previous research found that bibliotherapy can improve communication and attitude as well as reduce aggression for children with social issues.
This is a warm, accessible book that helps children to understand the confusing array of emotions and behavioral urges that normally follow trauma. Perhaps most importantly, Dr. Rashkin-Shoot de-mystifies the process of getting help.
