Book Description

This beautifully illustrated and sensitively written storybook and accompanying guide follows the story of the Silent Selkie as she struggles to manage her emotions and come face-to-face with what lies behind her behaviour.

The storybook is designed to encourage young people who may have adverse childhood experiences or trauma to develop a greater understanding of how this can affect them, while the supporting guide helps caring adults working with vulnerable children and young people to use the expressive arts to develop greater self-awareness and emotional literacy.

No matter their background, this storybook and guide will enable parents, carers, school staff and other professionals working with children and young people to use the arts in a therapeutic way to soothe, support, and provide an outlet for strong emotions.
