Lapidus Scotland

Lapidus Scotland holds and facilitates a wide variety of bibliotherapy practitioner events throughout Scotland.  While primarily based in Glasgow, we have hosted over 30 events with over 400 people throughout Scotland over the period of 2014 to present, in Glasgow, Fife, The Highlands and South Lanarkshire.  We also offer a yearly residential courses at the Whatton Lodge in picturesque East Lothian, which bring together bibliotherapy practitioners from all over the world.  Our events are aimed at bibliotherapy practitioners, users of bibliotherapy services, and anyone interested in writing for wellbeing, whether healthcare or library professionals or simply members of the public.

We also regularly publish anthologies of work written by bibliotherapy users, thus empowering individuals with long term conditions and encouraging wider use of bibliotherapy services.  Our most recent publication is Writing Place, and more information may be found here.
