Wrap-around Care

Drawing and Talking

Drawing and Talking is a child-centred one to one intervention focusing on supporting the social and emotional wellbeing of children and young people.

It is a safe and gentle therapeutic approach, which provides an effective way for children to process emotional pain or trauma they may be experiencing. It is considered a very simple but highly effective tool, that has the power to make the child feel emotionally better, and more resilient.

Your child would work one to one with our trained teaching assistant for 30 minutes, once a week over 12 sessions. Within the sessions, your child would draw anything they choose and would be encouraged to talk about feelings using storytelling language to help them make sense of their internal world.

The technique is intended to allow the child to play, by drawing a picture, and process any emotions they are holding internally in a safe and nonconfrontational way, working at their own pace.
