Story Links with Dr Trisha Waters

Story Links is a parent partnership intervention to support vulnerable pupils at risk of exclusion. It uses therapeutic storywriting to address emotional and behaviour issues and, in particular, supports pupils with attachment difficulties and improves pupils’ reading. It encourages parents to think in story metaphor about their child’s emotional concerns and to engage in regular sessions with their child.

The needs of pupils with attachment anxiety can be hard to address in the school environment. By engaging parents in this solution-focused intervention that uses stories co-created by pupil and parent, pupils feel more settled and develop their reading skills.
