Jill McWilliam


In this paper presentation report presenter (Jill McWilliam) will give a brief overview of the framework developed with school-based facilitators and multi agency teams for use alongside the Morton model of Therapeutic Story groups. The presenter will give a brief summary of case study material to show how a child used the space in a group to express inner pre-occupations and re-engage with learning and his peers and class teacher. The case study will include an example of the profile of the child developed using the evaluation tool (Metaphors Social and Learning Resilience Score) that is then shared with the school as a means of showing changes resulting from the work and next steps with the child in school or with the family.
