BIBLIOTHERAPY WITH JANICE

"BOOKS ARE MIRRORS: YOU CAN ONLY SEE IN THEM WHAT YOU ALREADY HAVE INSIDE YOU.".....from The Shadow of the Windby Carlos Ruiz Zafon

WHAT IS BIBLIOTHERAPY WITH JANICE? The above quote is the basic idea for this group. The group is led by marriage and family therapist, Janice Shapiro, who uses novels and memoirs as a therapeutic tool. Members read the story and come together to share interpretations. Opening the door to seeing the world from different viewpoints, enables wonderful relationships with the people who share our lives. 

WHO GOES TO BIBLIOTHERAPY GROUP? People who enjoy reading stories and want to understand and enrich their own lives.

WHERE AND HOW OFTEN? Each Book Cycle is 6 weeks long. Two weeks to read the book on your own. The first  meeting is orientation with Janice; the second meeting is check-in with Janice; The last four meetings will be with the group for one hour and 30 minutes.

Each group is limited to 6 members.
