Curiosity Killed the Caterpillar
 

Authored by Tamara Skjolden

The intent of this story is to help grown-ups spark conversation with children about how to cope when difficult feelings come up, as well as for adults who are trying to make sense of terrible things that happened to them if they were hurt as a child.

Something terrible has happened to 11 year old Lucy. She is overwhelmed and confused and doesn't know what to do. So she pushes all her Mad, Sad, Glad, and Scared, along with the Terrible Thing, into her backpack and runs away from home. On her journey, she meets many friends who share their experiences about how they cope and get through terrible things that have happened to them. All of these creatures teach valuable lessons for Lucy to add to her list of coping skills. Her journey helps her gather many skills and practice nurturing her Self.

As opposed to using a "therapeutic workbook" approach, this fictional story applies common themes in nature with therapeutic coping and grounding techniques. This can provide concrete tools to self soothe and nurture your Self through difficult emotions.

Beautifully illustrated by Artist, Geri Katopodis, who received her Bachelor's of Art and Design from Columbia College Chicago in 2007. More of her work may be seen in Chicago galleries and through her website at www.garifalia.blogspot.com
