All About Ben: Helping Children with Attachment Issues to Understand Their Feelings
‘When I am ready, I need you to talk to me and help me understand my feelings…’
This reassuring story helps children aged 5+ with attachment issues to understand their feelings, open up to a caring adult and learn how to choose positive behaviours.
Ben is made up of lots of different ‘parts’ – to name a few, he has happy, caring, angry, excited, hugging and yelling parts. Ben explains how all these parts are okay, and that a caring adult can help you to understand and manage them more easily.
This book also features activities to help children talk about their feelings, and a simple introduction to attachment theory for adults.
