Today Kaz and Somaya are talking about bibliotherapy.
Normally when you are feeling sick you take medicine, but how about reading a book as a way of getting better?
A bibliotherapist is someone who reads books to patients, or recommends books which they believe will help a patient recover.
Reading novels, poems and short stories can all form part of the therapy.
Although it is perhaps difficult to prove the
benefits of this kind of therapy, both patients and bibliotherapists say it has positive effects.
One major way in which it is seen to work is by helping people get in touch with their problems.
Identifying with a character in a book can help a patient address issues that they may have been feeling or experiencing themselves.
