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.
