I would highly recommend this game to any one working therapeutically with children and young people either to use as a whole intervention plan or as an easy to turn to ad hoc tool. It's a safe way to discuss important aspects of health and wellbeing.

I really think Book of Beasties is a revolutionary approach and it will change how young people think about their mental health for the rest of their lives.

Dr Tony Bates, Professor of Psychology


Thank you so much for your club, as fun as it was, it still helped me with my anger issues. The club gave me thoughts that made me feel better.

Book of Beasties is sorely needed for our children if they are to stand a chance of being emotionally functional, happy adults.

Mae Harris, Year 3 Teacher


I really hoped that the study would help to improve his ‘emotional intelligence’ and understanding of others. My husband and I were not prepared for the dramatic transformation we saw in our son.

There are many children who find it difficult to open up about experiences or understand why they might feel a particular way. Using the Book of Beasties game and online resources, allows children to address these emotions and thoughts through group discussions without putting the focus and pressure on them.
