Help children to stay on top of "big" feelings like anger, sadness and
anxiety with this ingeniously easy-to-use therapy toolkit. Focusing on
making therapy for children both purposeful and playful, the book
provides 47 activities to transform your sessions using everyday
materials and a variety of tried-and-tested therapy models.
The authors deliver sage advice on how to work with
children, adapting your approach for different age groups and judging
how and when to involve parents and teachers. The handy reference table
allows you to quickly fish out the perfect activity for the moment,
according to the emotion the child is experiencing, or the therapeutic
method needed. With its winning mix of creative resources and clinical
expertise, all wrapped up in a simple and practical format, this is the
ideal companion for both new and experienced therapists working with
children aged 4-12.
