Summary/Abstract: The leader of bibliotherapy directs the choice of the piece of art work, its interpretation, and its inclusion, in order to achieve a certain effect. The three protagonists of the literary therapy process are the receiver, the literary work and the therapist. The literary works can fulfill more functions. One is the mirror-function, where the receiver recognizes his problems in the art work. Another function is the model function, where he gets a model to follow, or negative model function. The main aim is that the literary work, in one or another way, should dynamize the participants, so that they recognize some message of the art work and find a relation between the story described in it and their own life stories.
