The right book at the right time can change your life…

… but can that power be leveraged for your patients and clients?

Bibliotherapy Lecture

Join us at the Mulford Library on Tuesday, April 15 from 4-5 p.m. for a lecture by Holly Eichner, M.Ed., CTRS on how books and reading can be used therapeutically.  The lecture will take place on the fourth floor of Mulford in room 420.  Light refreshments will be served.

Bibliotherapy uses reading materials as therapeutic adjuvants in treating individuals for a variety of concerns in medicine and psychiatry. Ms. Eichner is passionate about sharing the benefits of bibliotherapy and how it can be incorporated into various settings for people of all ages.

Ms. Eichner is a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist and received both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Education from The University of Toledo.  In addition to recreational therapy, Ms. Eichner has experience in outreach counseling and psychiatric rehabilitation.  She is currently the Communication Specialist and MyHealtheVet Coordinator at the John D. Dingell VA Medical Center in Detroit.

We hope to see you on April 15! Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions: or 419.383.5152.
