On Radio: The Therapy of Reading

The Therapy of Reading was broadcast last week on Australia’s national radio station ABC. It discusses the topic of ‘bibliotherapy’ and how health professionals are using books to address psychological issues with their patients. We’re glad to hear that it’s not just self help books, but classics that are making it on to their lists. The programme¬† features Susan McClaine, who in 2009 was trained by our Read to Lead team when they visited Melbourne. She has set up a shared reading project called ‘Book Well’ in the city and as part of this programme, she talks about the positive impact it’s having.
