Doing Distance - A psychological toolkit for armed forces children

Being a child of somebody in the armed forces can have a huge impact on the way that we see the world. A common theme amongst armed forces children is separation whether that be through deployments, weekending it or moving from place to place away from friends and family. This can often bring up a whole range of emotions and quite often these can be difficult to process. Working with Bear us in Mind, we have adapted their resources to guide adults through supporting children and teenagers to process these emotions they are experiencing.

Our worksheets are all accessible through our website to download for free, and we also have our Naval Children’s Charity bears which can be requested through our website. These worksheets, activities and resources all have a purpose which are explained in the accompanying videos.
