Author 1: Anne Greig and Tommy Mackay
Welcome to the world of the homunculi!
The homunculi are miniature agents with problem solving missions and special gadgets who live inside the brain and help out with distressing feelings and behaviours. Now adapted for use in the classroom, as well as pairs and individuals, this practical second edition allows you to use this fun CBT-based activity with children and young people aged 7-16.
This well researched approach is proven to help children who have difficulty identifying troubling feelings such as anger and fear and can be used in a variety of potentially distressing situations including bullying or tricky transitions from primary to secondary school. Complete with a large format skull poster, character and storyboard templates and downloadable record sheets this unique resource includes everything needed to get started on making stories cartoons or videos. Additional online resources show you how the programme was put in action in real-life individual and classroom settings, showcasing how the weirdly wonderful homunculi characters and stories created by children can come to life.
