Children’s video story about lockdown and the challenges
Date: 10 February 2021
At this time, it is understandable that children and young people may be feeling anxious and upset. This is why Talya Bruck, Dramatherapist and CAMHS Primary Mental Health Worker has originally written three stories to help children process the strangeness of the pandemic and lockdown and all it encompasses. In collaboration with Patricia Ojehonmon, Dramatherapist from SWLSTG Battersea Mental Health Team, Southwest London and St George's Mental Health NHS Trust, they have co-edited and adapted the stories to fit this third lockdown.
The first story entitled 'Hetty's in Lockdown Again!' is about some Savanna friends and their experiences in lockdown. The themes in this story are: uncertainty and change, difficult feelings like fear, confusion, the unknown as well as talking to trusted adults about how you feel and staying connected. The story also mentions the vaccine.
‘Hetty's in Lockdown Again’ is narrated by Kadeem Tyrell and Patricia Ojehonmon. The story was illustrated by Erin Cooper.
