‘BOOKS CAN HELP’
How does it work?
Brunel University has set up a
Bibliotherapy Scheme to support
students suffering mild to
moderate symptoms of anxiety,
depression, or a range of common
emotional difficulties.
Brunel University Bibliotherapy Scheme
is based on a list of recommended selfhelp books, which are stocked in the
University library. (These books are also
readily available on the internet or in
local book stores).
What is Bibliotherapy?
Bibliotherapy is a term used to cover
the use of self-help books to address
psychological and emotional concerns.
It can be very effective, especially for
people who are highly motivated.
Self-help materials can be used
independently, or alongside support
from a doctor or counsellor.
Brunel University Bibliotherapy Scheme
is based on an initiative developed in
Cardiff, which linked the city’s libraries
and medical practices. It has now been
established as Book Prescription Wales
and is used throughout the health
service in Wales.
w w w. b r u n e l . a c . u k / c o u n s e l l i n g
A student or staff member can borrow
these books from the library, and you
can check their availability on the
Library Catalogue, in advance:
http://www.brunel.ac.uk/
library_catalogue
Alternatively, a counsellor may
recommend a book to a student who
comes for counselling. The counsellor
will write out the book title on a
recommendation pad. The student
then takes this to the library, as with
any academic recommendation.

Can books really help?
Reader’s Comments
There is good evidence that books can
help people with many emotional
concerns. Like other self-help methods,
books are most effective when you are
motivated to spend the time and effort
to read the book and follow any
questionnaires or exercises.
(It is essential to make your own copy
of the material. Do not mark or write
in the books themselves).
“After working through the exercises
in this book I feel more in control of my
moods, and I can cope better when I
am feeling strong emotions”.
The books in the scheme have been
especially recommended for their
quality. They have been recommended
by people who have used them and
found them helpful. But different
books suit different people. If you
don’t find the recommended book
useful, look at some others until you
find one that is right for you.
“The beauty of this book is its practical
step-by-step approach”.
“After reading this book, I felt a new
sense of well-being”.
“This book has really helped me to
learn how to change those thoughts
and become a more positive person”.
“What I especially liked about this
book is its applicability in real life”.
Further Help
The books may be helpful on their
own. Reading a book may also be the
first step to identifying or tackling a
problem. This may prompt a student to
seek further advice and support from
the University Counselling Service or
your GP. This may be particularly
helpful if reading the books leads to
strong emotions that you find difficult
to manage alone.
