The Poetry Book:
This bright, cheerful collection of poems is filled with positive, uplifting and anti-victim blaming messages.
Addressing difficult themes of abuse in a sensitive way, these poems are written for children between the ages of 4-11 years.
This resource has been designed to be useful to children who have been subjected to abuse and the professionals working with children, but the poems can be enjoyed by any child at school or in the home.
A companion guide for professionals, parents and carers to be used alongside our children’s poetry book, We are NEVER to blame! Poems for Children.
Inside this workbook, you will find engaging, thoughtful and uplifting exercises designed to work with each poem and theme in the book.
This is a unique and powerful resource for children subjected to abuse, using a strengths-based and trauma-informed model.
For anyone who works with or supports children who have been subjected to abuse.
