A panorama of Bibliotheray in Brazil and Poland

My proposal is to present a panorama of Bibliotherapy in Brazil and Poland in the context of Librarianship. This work is a result of a research done in my master degree. I will use graphics and pieces of text to explain how bibliotherapy is held in these two distinct countries. My work focus on three simple questions involving the practical bibliotherapy: Who does it? How does it? Where does it? For answering these questions I analyzed articles from polishes and Brazilian periodicals indexes in the Library & Information Science Abstracts (LISA) and Brapci – a Brazilian data basis specialized in Information Science. Bibliotherapy is a simple and powerful tool that information professionals can use to promote a healthy society. Therefore, by highlighting an overview of the practice in these two countries I believe I can contribute to spread its power and awaken the interest in the subject.
