The content focuses on managing sensitive issues with children; this may be matters concerning separation, placement issues or wishes and feelings.

The input focuses on gaining and giving information in a manner that does not increase children’s anxiety and even unknowingly raise the potential for the development of issues.

A variety of mediums will be used during the day.
