How does it work?
The practitioner collects a range of information from files, interviews and physical evidence. This helps us to think about how the child sees their world and what issues they are facing.
Children, along with their carer, are encouraged to express their thoughts, feelings and emotions about the structured exercises using an interactive whiteboard. I work closely with carers to ensure that everyone is happy with the information that is shared and to help carers to work through difficult feelings, so that they feel more confident to support the child during the work.
Information from the interactive whiteboard is used to produce the child’s life story book. Children decide for themselves what should be included to represent their story for others to read.
