Product Description

Review

Talking to my mum, the companion voulune to Talking about Domestic Abuse, is a well-organised, easy-to-read activity workbook providing another excellent resource, this time for working with children aged between five and eight years old, who have experienced domestic abuse within their families. With the use of current research, the authors have shown great understanding and sensitivity in identifying issues that contribute to the difficulties women and children face when living within or leaving an abusive relationship. The workbook activities, with their excellently illustrated woodland characters, have been developed to attract and draw on the imagination of young children. Each activity introduces characters as a way for mothers and children to talk symbolically about positive and negative memories, changes that have happened in their lives, to identify and express feelings and move feeling and move forward on their journey to anew life. All the activities offer the opportunity for mothers and children to spend quality time together. Families can rebuild positive relationships in a safe, creative and fun way. This can only be helpful to the child's future development and self-esteem, and also to the mother's belief in herself as a parent. Both books would be essential tools for practitioners working with children and young people whose families have experienced domestic abuse. They are clearly written and illustrated in an engaging style that grasps the reader's attention. They also deepen an understanding of how and why a creative approach with children can work in the healing process. -- Counselling Children and Young People This a great book for mothers and children who have experienced domestic violence. It is very practical and explains each activity to the adult with lovely illustrations and offers activities for the child to work through. It could be used by a clinician (or other worker) with the child, but it is perhaps best used by a mother with her own child. -- youthmind.co.uk This picture workbook contains activities for five- to eight-year-olds who have been affected by domestic abuse, to help them recover and move on. Designed for children and their mothers to complete together, the book includes guidance for mothers on how to do this in a sensitive manner. The activities, which have been developed by the authors, are based on their own work with families who have experienced domestic abuse. -- Children Now

Format: Paperback
This book is brilliant, it gives you an insight into how your child could be feeling (things you would not normally think about), i did not go through all the exercises with my Child but i did read the book first to check it was appropriate for him to read and we both picked the subjects to talk about. I helped him realise there was positive's out of each situation and now he has a smile on his face knowing he doesn't need to keep his feelings to himself.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
an easy to use and accessible resource for those working with younger children affected by DV. I also found that the exercises can be adapted for use with older children. They do not have to be used sequentially and lend themselves to a 'dipping in and out' approach, which is really useful in this kind of work.
A useful addition to the resource shelf!
