Roxy's school programme is detailed in the guide below but partly consists of a book for children at transition age, when they are moving from primary to secondary school.
It is essentially a story about emotional welbeing but originally was to be about domestic violence. However, if you are talking to a child about the book it is a story about a dog called Roxy and the experences she has.
It contains chapters which subtly allow a child to empathise with everyday experiences which, through further discussion, allows a child to analyse the experiences, understand them and help to handle the emotional content. The intention is to allow the child the opportunity to cope with such situations in future in order to protect their welbeing.
