This booklet addresses how to use Persona Dolls and their stories to enhance wellbeing, self-esteem and resilience amongst children. Issues such as transitions, fears and loss, feelings of loneliness and lacking in self-confidence can loom large for children.

Persona Dolls can also help children address wider conditions of anxiety, for example the confusion and worry caused by the Covid19 pandemic. Children may feel confused, sad and/or angry by not being able to go to nursery or school, not seeing friends or extended family members, or people being ill at home. This booklet contains practical examples and general advice which we hope you’ll find very useful both at home and in a school or nursery setting.
