This book is designed to help children and young people identify and express feelings in an honest and appropriate way, within a group setting. The exercises are drawn from the author's experience in areas of teaching and youth work both at practitioner and management level... The activities and games in this book are simple to learn and most require a minimum of preparation. They are fun and accessible, and will encourage children and young people to express themselves within a group setting. However, all practitioners would be advised to be selective when using the exercises, and always with the client group and psyche at the forefront of the work. -- Jude Kidd, Freelance dramatherapist and supervisor * Dramatherapy * The book outlines a programme of games, activities and worksheets. The programme consists of five themes: * Making the Rules * Getting to Know Each Other * Expressing Yourself * Making Friends * Endings ... what makes this book useful is that these resources are accompanied by a clear aim and methodology for using each resource, almost akin to a lesson plan. -- National Centre for Guidance in Education, Ireland. This book is full of ideas for games and activities that can be used with individuals or groups to facilitate emotional expression and/or socialization as well as promoting self-esteem. It could be successfully used for PSHE or circle time by teachers, but is also likely to be useful for other professionals youth workers, counselors. -- Youth in Mind This interesting resource book, written by a qualified teacher and social worker, contains 45 activities exploring feelings with children and young people.
