Synopsis

Graphic Lives by Carol Holliday, Jo Browning Wroe

Graphic Lives is a series of highly engaging graphic novels for young people who may need counselling and psychotherapy. Each book introduces the difficulties faced by a teenage character and follows them as they travel on their therapeutic journey with a skilled and creative therapist. The key aims of these books are: * to demystify counselling and psychotherapy so that it is more appealing and accessible to young people * to destigmatise emotional and mental health problems so that young people are better able to accept help * to encourage young people to embark upon their own healing journeys, equipped with the sense that there is a way forward. The Essential Support Guide, designed to be used alongside the Graphic Lives novels, provides therapists and counsellors with a range of support resources, linked to the stories and the issues covered. For each graphic novel, this guide offers: * clear and concise coverage of risk factors and warning signs relating to the issue covered in the story * detailed exploration of each therapeutic session in the story so that you can devise you own sessions that link to the therapy in the story * an up-to-date summary of research around the issue covered in the book * professional guidance on working with that issue to help you achieve the best possible outcomes for the young people you work with.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
