This beautifully illustrated set contains a storybook and accompanying workbook, designed to be used with children and families working to re-build family relationships. Healthy and supportive family relationships are essential to mental health, and as referrals to Child and Adolescent Mental Health services continue to rise, growing research demonstrates the benefit of involving families in the treatment of children and young people facing emotional and mental health difficulties. This resource takes a solution-focused brief therapy approach to supporting families, providing professionals with a variety of tools to help family members to recognise their strengths as individuals and as a family, and harness these as they search for solutions together.

This resource includes:

  • An engaging and attractive storybook, telling the story of an average family who have been visited by ‘shouting’, and must work together to bring happiness back to their home
  • A colourful workbook, with a range of photocopiable activities and guidance for the professional

Developed out of the author’s 20 years’ experience of working with families in different settings across social care and mental health, this is a vital resource for social workers, counsellors, mental health professionals and individual and family psychotherapists working with families and children. Each book is also available to purchase individually.
