Request for Research Participants

Dear Story Links Teachers

Would you like to assist my research study which aims to explore the impact of the StoryLinks intervention on children and their parents?

My name is Joanna Spragg and I am a Trainee Educational Psychologist at the University of Southampton. I am carrying out a research study about StoryLinks entitled, “Story Links: An exploration of how a collaborative storytelling intervention may support children’s emotional understanding and the parent-child relationship.”

My aim is to contribute to the evidence base for this intervention and best practice, as well as to explore the potential for it to impact positively on children in school. I need your help to identify the parents and children involved with StoryLinks, so I can ask if they would like to take part in my research.

The study will take place between November 2016 and 31st July 2017. My research is taking place in the South and South East of England. If you are delivering the intervention in this area and would like to know more about the study, please contact me at
