Giving young people the right tools to express their feelings.

Rainbows Ireland is a free, voluntary service for children experiencing loss following bereavement and parental separation.

It provides group support for children and young people throughout Ireland through a series of tailored programmes. They approached us to work on their programme for teenagers dealing with issues relating to bereavement or parental separation. Following the completion of that project, we were asked to design ‘Conversations with Children’, Rainbows Ireland's back to school programme to help children to adjust to life back in school after several months at home during the Covid-19 crisis.

Each programme deals with heightened emotions so the challenge for us was to ensure that the design was sensitive to the topics.

Rainbows Ireland's 'Conversations with Children' programme is a resource framework that was developed to support children on their return to school as the COVID-19 restrictions lift. Each session in the resource looks at helping children digest what they have experienced during the last few months and gives them the space to begin to make sense of what has been happening and understand many of the feelings and emotions that they may have experienced.

Using the same visual styling as the teenage programme, this resource adapts the bright colours and doodle style to create a series of activities that engage its audience, encouraging them to express their feelings about the impact of Covid-19 on their lives.
