Using creative therapy techniques developed through years of working with young children, this activity book will be an invaluable resource for professionals working with children aged 6-11. Unique drawing exercises develop confidence, encourage self-awareness and help open up conversations where children are struggling to verbalise their thoughts or emotions. In this interactive book, 50 illustrated, entertaining characters help children explore and process their emotions – such as Stomper who loves to dance, or the Balloon Brothers who lift away sad feelings. These tried and tested communication tools are particularly helpful for children with autism or additional needs, or children suffering from anxiety or bullying. Each illustrated character is accompanied by a fully photocopiable story page to guide discussions. With additional information for counsellors, this book will be an invaluable tool for therapists, social workers, SENCOs and educational professionals.
