“This is My World” is an invaluable workbook created to support therapists in their work with children and adolescents diagnosed with a medical illness. The workbook contains a range of activities carefully designed to foster a therapeutic connection and encourage meaningful discussions about various aspects of the child’s life. It covers important topics such as self-perception, family dynamics, friendships, school, illness, and the future. By engaging with the workbook, children can express their thoughts, concerns, hopes, dreams, and anxieties related to their medical condition.
Therapists are encouraged to utilise the workbook at a pace that allows for thoughtful reflection and in-depth conversations. The activities are intended to help identify problems, elicit concerns, and provide a platform for children to express their emotions openly.
Importantly, this workbook belongs to the child, serving as a personal reflection of their unique journey. Therapists are encouraged to provide colored pencils, crayons, or markers to encourage creativity and self-expression. In the future, this workbook can serve as a meaningful keepsake for children and their families, offering a glimpse into their experience of living with a medical illness.
