  10. Bibliotherapy • Bibliotherapy functions as an intervention in which students read about literary characters who undergo experiences similar to their own. It is through this shared experience that students identify and connect with the characters’ situation and come to the realization that others experience similar concerns. The selected literature can correspond simultaneously with instructional objectives (i.e. SOL’s). • (Vernon, 2004)
