Emotional Wellbeing: An Introductory Handbook was written by Gillian Shotton and Sheila Burton who worked together as educational psychologists in Southampton and Hampshire. It was created specifically to support the ELSA role, reflecting all areas of the ELSA training in Hampshire.
Gillian has gone on to develop ELSA work in Northumberland, and both have supported the introduction of the ELSA model in various other local authorities. Each chapter outlines some key psychology with a focus on practical applications, illustrated by brief case examples. The final chapter outlines a wide range of published games and books that ELSAs have found popular in their work with children.
