The article discusses the assumptions of the use of bibliotherapy elements when solving social and pedagogical adolescent problems. The research shows that students, who are defined as having no reading motivation, identify reading with a possibility to empathize with the main protagonist and relate it with development of imagination, rhetoric and other skills necessary for successful socialization. According to the theoretical assumptions of reading strategy usage and qualitative research result analysis it brings us to conclusion that pedagogues could apply bibliotherapy elements as a means to solve emotional, socio-pedagogical problems, to form person’s attitude towards himself and the world surrounding him.
