The value of bibliotherapy based upon results of previous studies made leaves experts at odds because the studies do not probe into its uniqueness to counselors as an aid to helping students.

The specifics pertinent to this investigation are as follows: 1. To identify materials which the Junior high school counselor can use wisely and judiciously with his counselees toward maximum personality growth and development. 2. To delineate the inherent problems in bibliotherapy. 3. To provide the bibliotherapeutic procedural guide.

Everyone concerned with the educational process recognizes certain basic interrelated needs which must be met if adolescents are to learn to cope effectively with life's vicissitudes. This knowledge forms the basis for guidance in our schools, and counselors are confronted with the task of assisting young people in meeting and solving their problems. Thus, this study will prove a significant instrument for counselors who seek to promote wholesome personality adjustments in their counselees.

The major limitations of this study are an analysis of the applicability of bibliotherapy to junior high school counseling.
