    We are in the throws of developing schemes of work in partnership with drama therapists and psychologists in teaching Primary children to be and stay healthy through drama. My son suffers from anxiety and depression and I am invested in ensuring that the work goes therapeutically deep. We are keen to hear stories from teachers about the challenges they face in teaching this area of work now it is expected of them. How do they feel about it in terms of additional workload, skills shortfall or simply feeling out of your depth. What training have you undertaken and was it enough to prepare you? What type of support do schools really need to ensure children are supported in the right way and how, with all the funding cuts could schools possibly look to outsource if there is a skills gap in the school.

    We really appreciate any advice or support in this area. Thank you.
