Truth & Lies

For children’s evidence to be used in criminal or family proceedings, they need to demonstrate their understanding of the difference between truth and lies. This DVD contains 20 clips for children and young people to watch and answer a simple question: ‘Did he tell the truth or a lie?’

Tried and tested in more than 200 police interviews and criminal trials, these 20 film clips (10-20 seconds) show real children telling the truth or telling lies about events proven to engage children and young people.

These films resolve a number of problems, requiring minimal language processing, not requesting the child to imagine or pretend or listen to a ‘story’, and requiring no person present to tell a lie or be accused of lying.

The DVD is licensed for 10 users.

Also available as an app for Apple and Android devices. The app is licensed for a single user.

All Join In

This unique video, made with a diverse group of 3-7 year olds, helps children develop skills for communicating and making friends and for understanding their own and others feelings.

All Join In looks at new experiences and new relationships through a child's eyes, aiming to encourage:

  • Inclusion - children are encouraged to wonder about other children and about differences in a positive way.

  • Emotional literacy - children are shown skills for observing and understanding each others feelings.

The video is almost adult free, interactive, lively and fun.

All Join In has been heavily influenced by young children from start to finish. The 14 children who appear in the video were involved in planning, filming and editing. More than 200 other children have watched and given feedback at home and in nurseries and schools at different stages in the project.

All Join In is designed to be watched in five stand-alone sections of around 10 minutes. The storyline follows a group of young children who come together for the first time and learn to get along.
