Therapeutic Story Writing
Therapeutic story writing is an interactive and creative way to support children’s emotional literacy and academic skills. It uses the metaphor in stories to support children whose emotional and behavioural difficulties are
impacting their engagement.
It can also support pupils who have suffered a loss or a traumatic experience to express their feelings in a safe way. Children co-create stories that will empower them to address emotional issues in a way that does not overwhelm the child and gives time and space to explore obstacles they feel are barriers to their learning.
