Overview

The Homunculi, (or 'little people'), is a fun activity that builds social and emotional resilience in children and young people, aged 7 to teen. It is particularly suited to those with high functioning autism or Asperger's Syndrome who often have difficulty identifying troubling feelings such as anger, fear and anxiety.

The Homunculi are miniature agents with problem-solving missions and special gadgets who live inside the brain and help out with distressing thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Through inventing their own Homunculi characters and stories, participants in the activity learn to cope with their real-life social problems. Complete with an A1-sized skull poster, character and storyboard templates, and photocopiable record sheets, this unique resource includes everything needed to get started on making Homunculi stories, cartoons or videos.

This flexible, 10-week, CBT-based program will be transformative for psychologists, therapists, teachers and other professionals working with children on the autism spectrum or with behavioral difficulties.
