This book is especially useful for professionals working with ‘at-risk’ children, such as looked-after children, or children suffering from trauma or abuse. Using storytelling and storywork this book enables the facilitator to create a safe structure in order for children to play. Through playing children can:
• Communicate their experiences, fears, hopes and dreams
• Discover their own strengths and creative skills
• Improve their forming of secure attachments with adults
• Begin to understand their own behaviours.
