Literatures have shown that freshmen often suffered from emotional disturbance problems, such as self-identity and interpersonal relationship. They might become lack of self-confidence or even overwhelmed by uneasiness and anxiety. In this regard, freshmen can relieve their negative emotions with self-help reading. Hence they might understand that other people have undergone similar experience and learn how to deal with the difficult situation. This is the core of the so-called “bibliotherapy”. In contemporary society, people are more adapted to visual images. In consequence, picture books are read by not only children but also adolescents and grownups, and thus play an adequate role as an emotional healing material for them. Therefore, the researcher looked up related bibliographies, chose a picture book, and provided it to interviewees for reading. The chosen material is “Grand Loup & Petit Loup”, which is about the development of a new interpersonal relationship. Then the researcher conducted semi-structured in-depth interviews with 15 freshmen of National Taiwan University, to understand the emotional disturbance problems this picture book can help with and the emotional healing process of each interviewee. The findings revealed that this picture book could help freshmen face their emotional disturbance problems, such as self-identity and interpersonal relationship. Also, the findings showed all of the interviewed freshmen would identify themselves with the characters in the picture book, and most of them underwent emotional catharses during their reading. Finally, all of the interviewees have generated new ideas and perspectives which could be applied in their campus lives.
