Simply stated, Bibliotherapy can be defined as the use of books to help people solve problems, it utilizes books as a therapeutic tool. Can be incorporated into a treatment program and can even become an integral part of treatment.

NICE Guidance for Patients & the Public
NICE produce versions of all our guidance for patients, carers and the public. For all of our guidance, except public health, this version is called ‘understanding NICE guidance’ and summarises, in plain English, the recommendations that we make to health and other professionals.
For public health, we produce a version of the guidance called ‘quick reference guide’ which summarises our recommendations for health and other professionals as well as for the public.
The ‘Understanding NICE guidance’ documents are designed to complement, not replace, other sources of patient information that explain in more detail the condition and available treatments. Most of these documents contain contact information for relevant patient or carer organisations that can provide more detailed information and support for specific conditions. In December 2009, NICE was awarded The Information Standard quality mark, which we can display on our ‘Understanding NICE guidance’ documents published since then as a mark of quality and reassurance for the public.
The search below will show you the patient and carer version of our guidance and also give you a link to all the other guidance documents and other information we produce for health and other professionals.
