Sample text

Jeon (1992) points out that book-induced emotions are easier for children to cope with and for adults to assist with because they are more predictable and controlled than the spontaneous emotions that children experience otherwise. As a third purpose, several prominent bibliotherapists argue that literature and film can assist children and adolescents with solving their day-to-day problems. " Sullivan (1987, 875) writes about using literature to explore sensitive issues with her students. " A vivid explanation of how literature assists problem solving is provided by Frasier and McCannon (1981) when they suggest that readers are permitted, through imagination, to try out various solutions without suffering the real-life consequences.

Similarly, Hébert (1991) notes that through books children and adolescents can thoughtfully analyze a problem situation while remaining safe from the consequences of their imagined decisions. Fictional works might assist children both by posing solutions to problems that readers had not considered independently or by describing consequences of those solutions that readers had not anticipated (Jeon 1992; Pardeck and Pardeck 1984a). Fourth, most bibliotherapists also believe that the insight, catharsis, and assistance with problem solving provided by literature will cause young people to change the ways in which they interact with or behave toward other people.

In the absence of any evidence to resolve the dispute, Pardeck and Pardeck (1986, 3) very sensibly suggest that the level of training depends upon the kind of bibliotherapy being practiced. ''[T]he helping person need not have advanced clinical skills. '' Following their example, we see no need to restrict the practice of developmental bibliotherapy, in which book discussions address typical problems in well-adjusted children and adolescents. At the same time, there appears to be good reason to caution well-intentioned professionals about engaging in clinical bibliotherapy unless they have adequate training in the child and adolescent mental health conditions that such therapy addresses.
