What the experts say:
'Seiler's method is playful and fun for the child involved while providing both an assessment tool and a means of making a healthy, psyche-sensitive therapeutic intervention.'
- Mary Smail, Psychotherapist & Director of the Sesame Institute for Drama and Movement Therapy, London
'I used the toolkit with a child who usually gives one-worded answers. Today he was enthusiastic and had lots to say about his family thanks to these minature animals and the guidance in the handbook!'
