All Right? Campaigns and Projects: The Worry Bug
This collection contains photographs from the launch of The Worry Bug at St Albans School.
In 2015 All Right? supported The Worry Bug, a project created by registered psychologist Julie Burgess-Manning and teacher Sarina Dickson. The project consists of two books ‘Wishes and Worries’ (for use in classrooms) and ‘Maia and The Worry Bug’ (for use at home), written by Julie Burgess-Manning and Sarina Dickson, who are both Christchurch mothers.
The books are illustrated by artist Jenny Cooper and each contains a story and activities (based on cognitive behavioural therapies and linked to the school curriculum) to help children and families overcome anxiety.
Canterbury Community Trust and the Canterbury Earthquake Appeal Trust funded the books to be distributed free of charge to every new entrant through to Year 4 class and their students in Christchurch city and the Selwyn and Waimakariri districts.
