Based on solution-focused brief therapy, this book presents a range of exercises, which help children to explore their own knowledge and perception of their difficulties, and emphasises their ability to do something about them.
Professionals become facilitators to solutions by encouraging children to become aware of the affects of their actions, thoughts and behaviours upon themselves and their environment.
Sessions cover everything from:
- setting up a group
- establishing ground rules and assessing individual needs
- recording progress and celebrating success
This manual is for workers engaged with either groups or individual children. It offers material to teachers, psychologists, social workers and therapists that is easy to access, manageable within time constraints and most importantly extensive.
The book is a tried and tested package and a brilliant resource to use as a step-by-step guide. Interesting for children too!
