Theracomics use the many advantages of comics to teach social and emotional skills to kids. Being both visual and verbal they quickly present social situations from several points of view, inviting readers to develop perspective and understanding. Kids get to 'try out' different responses through the characters while making connections with their own challenges. When read with teachers, parents or therapists Theracomics allow guided discussion and reflection to take place. Theracomics tell stories about the things kids deal with and think about, like friendships, anxiety, anger management, bullying, resilience, success at school, happiness, character development.
