The Centre for Therapeutic Storywriting promotes the use of therapeutic storywriting by educational professionals supporting pupils with emotional and behavioural difficulties.

We do this by delivering training to educational professionals, conducting evaluative  research, providing online support and delivering a Train the Trainer programme.
