This is my World: Gathering child’s views on self, family, friendships, school, illness & the future

This workbook has been created as a psychotherapeutic tool for therapists to use in working with children and adolescents who have been diagnosed with a medical illness but can be utilised by any practitioners trying to establish children’s/young people’s views, wishes and feelings.

The activities included in this workbook were designed to facilitate rapport building and contribute to discussion surrounding the various aspects of the child’s life, including: views on self, family, friendships, school, illness, and the future.

It is advised that workers utilise the workbook at a slow pace, encouraging verbal interaction and a more thorough discussion of the different concepts that are presented. This way, the workbook can be successful in identifying problems, eliciting concerns, and expressing frustrations, hopes, dreams, and/or anxieties.
