Poetry Therapy and Bibliotherapy - Are terms used synonymously to describe the intentional use of poetry and other forms of literature for healing and personal growth. The term "biblio" means books and, by extension, literature. "Therapy" is derived from the Greek word "therapeia" meaning "to serve or help medically." Basically then, bibliotherapy is the use of literature to promote mental health. 2/5
