The study aims to qualitatively examine the process by which a female Taiwanese student utilized self-guided bibliotherapy to alleviate her emotional disturbances over a homosexuality-related breakup. The research question is: How did the participant use self-guided bibliotherapy to deal with her emotional difficulties and accept the breakup with her lover? The data sources included MSN interviews, bibliotherapeutic materials, follow-up e-mails, and a mind-map. The result of the study facilitates a better understanding of the feasibility and importance of self-guided bibliotherapy in dealing with life problems such as a breakup. Pedagogically speaking, educators and school counselors may employ bibliotherapy and offer bibliotherapeutic resources to increase their students’ mental literacy. Moreover, interested researchers may work on identical or further studies on the value of self-guided bibliotherapy to contribute to the field of bibliotherapy.
