About this resource:

My Safeship is a worksheet designed to help children identify and express the people, places, or things that make them feel safe and supported. The worksheet encourages children to create and imagine their personal "Safeship," a metaphorical safe space where they can find comfort and security.

• Identifying Protective Factors: Children are encouraged to think about and write down the people, places, or items that make them feel safe and supported.
• Communication and Connection: By sharing their Safeship with parents, professionals, or teachers in their lives, children can effectively communicate their needs and feelings, fostering connection and support.
