The BB4K children’s support groups run on a weekly basis for 10 weeks using arts and play therapy techniques to empower children, equipping them to express their feelings constructively. Groups are run by two or more trained facilitators. The sizes of the groups are kept to between six to eight children of similar ages.
The BB4K groups cover different topics designed to empower and facilitate the healing process of children:
- Making connections
- Breaking the silence
- We have feelings too
- Helping hands
- Keeping ourselves safe
- We are not to blame
- Is it right to fight?
- Understanding anger
- Bag full of worries
- I’m special
Two groups are planned to run from September 2017, for Reading and for West Berkshire. A group for Reading is planned for January 2018, and two further groups, for Reading and West Berkshire, in April 2018.
Two Recovery Toolkit groups for adults and young people (ages 11-14) are planned for Bracknell in September 2017 and January 2018.
We are not currently running any BB4K groups in Oxfordshire. If you are seeking support for a family please contact your local LCSS who may be able to offer alternative support. If you are a family living in Oxfordshire please contact the MASH team - 0345 050 7666.
