Poo GoesHome ToPOOLAND
by Tamsin Black
 
Foreword
Children who suffer encopresis often begin to feel that there is little more tothem than the problem itself. In ‘Poo Goes Home to Pooland’, the problem isembodied in a troublesome character and placed externally to the child. This process aims to place some distance between the child and the blame andshame of soiling. This helps to free them from their fears and may mobilise previously beleaguered resources within the child and their family.‘Externalising’ stories have proved valuable in engaging children in behavioural treatment programmes within a family therapy context. However,you may find them useful in combination with your chosen therapeutic style.The most famous incarnation of ‘Poo’ is ‘Sneaky Poo’ (see Heins & Ritchieor Williams & Wright). However, the complexity of these stories makes themunsuitable for very young children.The style and content of ‘Poo Goes Home to Pooland’ was designed to suitthe cognitive development stage of children up to around seven years of age.Individual illustrations and accompanying text are intended to promoteunderstanding of toileting matters and to relieve anxiety. They cover topicssuch as sharing unhappy feelings and how to recognise when you need a poo.A colouring book of the story has also been produced to encourage youngchildren to think about the story at home and within their family; this can be photocopied without seeking permission. The clinician’s copy is produced insturdier form for repeated use.Talking about ‘Pooland’ might help you to engage a child in getting controlof their poo. Alternatively, ‘Shy Poo’ may inspire you to develop a newcharacter for ‘Poo’, one to suit the particular personality of the child in your care.
