Moving from country to country is no small feat. This activity book is designed for use with children aged 6-12 to help those on the move to navigate the process of global transition smoothly. Based on the latest relocation and transition research, wellbeing boosting strategies are shared for transition and beyond.

Children are introduced to mindful activities and are encouraged to use their creativity by annotating and illustrating the pages as they move through the book, allowing them to be an active participant in their move. Leaving Well Activity Book helps children to reflect on how they feel about the move, to remember other moves and understand that change is a part of life. Full of valuable strategies to boost wellbeing as they move forward, the text highlights top tips for expressing feelings that will help children prepare for departure. The book normalises mixed feelings, helping the child acknowledge their hopes and fears, and reflect on their sense of control. This book can be used effectively alongside:

Arriving Well Activity Book which helps the child settle in their new place, to reflect on the move and understand that change is a part of life.

Moving On Facilitator’s Guide which offers guidance notes and prompts to help bring out the best experience for the child and is designed to help the adult feel confident in their delivery and in responding to any questions. It contains key points to consider, examples of ‘what you could say’, as well as explains the theory behind the workbook activities.

Acting as a tool for engagement, Leaving Well Activity Book will help children come to terms with the move and help adults support children preparing to leave for a new country.
