Key Stage 1/2 Drug Education: 'Rory' and Little Mouse (Exploring Domestic Violence)

Description
 
The Rory resource pack provides a range of materials based on the characters and themes of the story including a puppet, kennel, storybook and activity pack. The resource pack can be used by anyone in a position to address the issue of alcohol parental misuse including teachers, learning mentors and cluster support workers. For children who are not affected by this issue, Rory aims to help children develop empathy for those who are and supports the development of key life skills for the future.

    • Delegates attending this course will receive a full ‘Rory’ resource pack on a one per school/organisation basis (additional packs can be purchased at the full cost of £80)

Little Mouse Finds a Safe Place is a children's storybook designed to help professionals support children who have witnessed domestic violence abuse within the home. The book is designed to be read with children and also contains guidelines and resources for professional and parental use. Both a genuinely thrilling and moving story for children, Little Mouse also concisely conveys many important psychological messages which will be evident to professionals working in this field. Little Mouse genuinely conveys the tension and anguish of children in this situation, as well as providing a safe and contained ending that can open discussion with children and enable them to begin their own journey of healing with the adult alongside.

  • Please note the Little Mouse book and puppet are not included in the training but are available at a cost of £20.00.  Any schools wishing to purchase the Little Mouse resource are required to email proof of authorisation to purchase together with an order number if applicable in advance of the training.
