This week a very exciting thing happened. The Scottish Centre for Conflict Resolution (SCCR) website went live and on it were my illustrations! Regular readers of this blog will know that I have been volunteering this year with the SCCR and I’m pretty passionate about what they do. Well, this time they trusted me enough to be a fully paid up member of the team (what were they thinking?!) and I’m super proud to have been part of it. You can view the site here.
Obviously I’m a bit biased but once I’d started delving into the site I found it really engrossing. Conflict is a big word but often it starts with little things that build up to something that seems impossible to unravel. That idea of a tangle, described by a family mediator, was the starting point for my illustrations. The website is full of resources and opportunities to learn from professionals and other parents about how to improve family communication and resolve conflict. Go on, have a look – it’s great!
