Book Description

17 Jan 2001 Helping Children with Feelings
A guidebook to help children who: * Bully or take revenge on others for the pain they have felt themselves * Have become very defensive because something too painful has happened to them * Have hardened their hearts because they have: been too hurt in love; met with too much harshness; witnessed parental violence; been repeatedly hit; been shamed or humiliated; or - had too many experiences of not being responded to * Think they have lost their parent's love to someone else and have hardened their heart

Product Description


"If a child is to benefit from the full therapeutic potential of A Wibble Called Bipley, the accompanying guidebook will be a vital resource. It will enable the reader to offer the child a far richer and more empathic response to the issues the story raises. The guidebook details the common psychological origins and most relevant theories for the problems and issues in the story. Rather than seeking to blame, the author aims to offer support to parents, teachers and anyone looking after children who may encounter such troubled children, and enable them to use the story as a vehicle to help these children think about and work through their feelings." - Social Spectrum "Sunderland's whole series is excellent. I find I recommend each one... Good writing, wonderful artwork, a real impetus to use the material" Adoption Today "A vital resource for all parents and child professionals" Families Magazine "Margot's books are digestible teaching aids for anyone working with children - a resource that would be beneficial in every school both for qualified and non-qualified staff". Special Children

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Intentions but... 21 Nov 2011
By Maddy
Having been a Margot Sunderland fan for several years I began to use her therapeutic stories with the children I work with. Sunderland is an incredible force in the world of neuroscience and she has written numerous books, such as What Every Parent Needs To KnowWhat Every Parent Needs to Know: The incredible effects of love, nurture and play on your child's development which I would highly recommend every young person reads BEFORE they ever think about having children.

Sunderland is a brilliant, much needed lecturer; her research and knowledge are invaluable in a world where we need answers as to why mental illness and crime are such a problem to us all. Along with people such as Dr Dan Hughes Building the Bonds of Attachment: Awakening Love in Deeply Troubled Children and their predecessors such as Sir John Bowlby A Secure Base (Routledge Classics), Sunderland continues to spread the word about the dire effects on mankind when babies are not nurtured properly.

However, when it comes to her series of therapeutic stories such as A Wibble Called Bipley,A Wibble Called Bipley: A Story for Children Who Have Hardened Their Hearts or Becomes Bullies (Helping Children with Feelings) which I perceive are designed to help children face difficult emotions they may not be completely aware of, I believe the stories can do more harm than good when used by practitioners who do not have the considerable expertise of Sunderland and Hughes.
