CTSW Update, July 2020


As pupils return to school, the need for emotional support within the learning environment will be needed more than ever. Therapeutic Storywriting Groups and Story Links are evidence-based 10-week interventions that can easily be delivered in a socially distanced and Covid-safe manner in school. Our virtual training makes the interventions, which are used in over 26 Local Authorities in the UK, more widely accessible.
