Thanks again Ann for yesterday's activity - have banked your others for later in the month.
Thanks also for those of you sharing your feedback via Twitter - really enjoying receiving messages throughout the day from you all.
Here's Donna's duos latest work:

And here are some book recommendations that fit well with this activity in terms of helping people recognise all feelings are valid and what they could safely do when feeling this way.

Day 7 Activity:
Today's activity focuses on the link between Themes 1 & 2 in the Protective Behaviours process and the skills needed to build a Personal Network.
Theme 2 says: 'We can talk with someone about anything, even if it feels awful or small'. - someone, rather than just anyone or everyone and the 'someone' needs to a person who listens, believes and helps us to do something or does something on our behalf. So, please can you have a go at suggesting a Personal Network for a fictional character?
Attached is a Network Hand or you could use anything that has 5 parts and please remember 'Adults of Choice at Home' take up just one of the parts and can be left empty.

And here's one Donna produced with one of her children using PicCollage:


And for those of you interested in my Puppet pictures, here's Molly feeling safe snuggled up in bed.


Thank you to Judith Staff for sharing pictures of a Safe Place Display she produced a while back with children in their first year at school - here's a link to the post:
www.protectivebehaviours.org/protective-...-pbs-in-practice#218

I'm feeling hopeful that all schools will now realise how important it is for children, young people and adults to feel safe and help them exercise the right to this when they return to school.


Just realised I forgot to attach an example of a Collective Safe Place produced during a PBs workshop - this really helped people understand that different things feel safe to different people and therefore not to assume everyone likes certain sights, smells, tastes, sounds and textures!

Thank you for sharing your e.xamples of potential Personal Networks for fictional characters - I really enjoyed thinking about who might have been on Eliizabeth Bennet's, how important her sister Jane was and how they kept in contact via letter througout the whole Mr Darcy saga! (Think he was always part of her Network whereas Wickham got the boot once his true story came to light).
I also enjoyed hearing ideas for Bart Simpon's network - Santa's Little Helper would be a perfect 'Palm Pal', but don't think Homer had the qualities needed and felt interested to note Bart's typical way of contacting his Network tends was via his behaviour!!!!! :silly:
Harry Potter's different Networks were intriguing as he would need one for when he was at Hogwarts and another for times spent 'at home' with the Dursleys. No wonder if felt less safe at No 4 Privet Drive.
And as for Darth Vader, M&M thought he needed some help to develop his! Not sure Luke & Leia would have much sympathy but M&M disagreed!


The ability to build a Personal Network for a fictional character enables people to practise the skills needed to identify safe characteristics and apply a Network Review. This can then be transferred to building their own Personal Networks and realising how helpful it is to review these regularly especially at times like now when they may have been reveiwed for us and our usual ways of making contact have needed to change. I'm definitely developing my virtual world communication skills :woohoo:

Our thanks today go to Beth & Co for sharing their Emotions Check in Board - what a fab way to let people know where we're at throughout the day and validate each other's feelings.

Looking forward to seeing your creations and hearing about how your using them ;)
