“Reading for a living – How bibliotherapy can change our lives”

April 5


On April 5th, the presentation of the book “Reading to live – How bibliotherapy can improve our lives”, by Sandra Barão Nobre, will take place.

“Bibliotherapy allows us to take care of the continuous development of the human being, through the subjective and existential relationship that each one establishes with stories, whether they are read in silence, narrated by others or dramatized. Its purpose is to improve the mood and well-being of any person. With the book “Ler Para Viver”, Sandra Barão Nobre wishes to share her knowledge by bringing bibliotherapy from the almost exclusively academic and theoretical world to everyday life, helping the reader to live better.”

Sandra Barão Nobre has a degree in International Relations from the University of Lisbon (1995) and has been dedicated exclusively to bibliotherapy as an independent professional since 2016. To this end, she added to the Certificate of Pedagogical Competences (2013) an International Certificate of Coaching Practitioner (2016), a training in Bibliotherapy for Children and Youth at the Faculty of Psychology of the University of Porto (2016) and a Post-Graduation in Bibliotherapy and Mediation of Literary Reading at the Community University of the Chapecó Region, in Brazil (2022). She accompanies private and corporate clients in bibliotherapeutic processes, coordinates bibliotherapeutic projects in various institutions (educational establishments, companies, associations, hospitals, etc.), promotes training actions on bibliotherapy and the promotion of reading, produces content on bibliotherapy and promotes events around bibliotherapy and reading for partner entities.

In 2024 she published, in the Nascente label, “Ler Para Viver – How bibliotherapy can improve our lives“.

She is also the author of two books with accounts of her travels: “A Trip Around the World with Readers” (Relógio d’ Água, 2017) and “Três Vezes Irão: Viagens Anotadas” (Edições Húmus, 2021).
