Happy Saturday, Bibliophiles!
I’m very excited to finally announce to you a project that I have been working on. This past May, I graduated with my masters in social work with an emphasis on mental health. Throughout my schooling, I always knew that I wanted to start my own organization that incorporates literature into mental health services. My dream is finally coming to fruition with the creation of Literary Apothecary. My goal with this organization is to offer services and packages that utilize literature, mindfulness, and art in in-home therapy, while also providing a virtual support system through online forums and video consultations and small groups.
The official name for the utilization of literature in therapy is bibliotherapy. The basis of the programs I am creating involves the utilization of various novels and memoirs to address mental health issues. I am trained in bibliotherapy and mindfulness therapies, as well as utilizing art in therapy, and the development of each program will incorporate these to create a set of cohesive programs that are designed to treat various disorders and life circumstances.
I have been over the moon developing this organization, and I am so excited to finally be able to share my pre-launch with you! Please help support by signing up for our newsletter and liking our Facebook page. I would be so grateful!
