Although there are no officially accredited degree-awarding programs in bibliotherapy, several organizations have taken the initiative to train potential bibliotherapists, ranging from library-related groups to college programs in psychology all over the world. Here are some examples of such programs, which have not been evaluated or endorsed by the Reading for Recovery project, the Rutgers Center of Alcohol Studies, the Carnegie-Whitney corporation, the American Library Association, or Rutgers University Libraries.
