Product description

Review

The activities section is underpinned by a succinct theoretical background chapter and there is an additional chapter on working with parents. This is a very clearly set out and easily accessible book. It is most useful as it can be followed as written or used to dip into and take ideas which can then be incorporated into current successful circle time or PSHE practice. -- Afasic News The book is practical, positive and easy to use and is an invaluable resource for anyone looking for positive, practical ways of nurturing confidence and self-esteem. -- NAGC Magazine The book is divided into useful sections and begins with a section specifically for teachers. Each session of the children's group is well introduced, and all the materials are clearly explained with examples from the author's experience. There are also ideas for additional activities that can be used, and the materials have nice graphics and are easily photocopied. -- YouthinMind.co.uk Children, young people and adults who have experienced neglect and abuse of any kind, will often have faulty or low levels of self esteem. Helping Children to Build Self Esteem gave practical ways in which to help children value themselves more positively. It helps us understand the wrong messages which we may have taken on board as small children or following abuse and, using the photocopiable activity sheets, enables us to correct our way of valuing ourselves. It encourages growth in self-confidence as well as helping to appreciate the roles that others play in our lives. -- Caring Magazine The book consists of lots of practical pointers, which are useful for both new practitioners to group work and reminders for those more experienced. The start has good examples for of how the groups can be facilitated. Each session has clear aims, non-patronizing worksheets, and a comprehensive suggested further reading list. It also has useful examples of relaxation exercises at the end of the book. This book takes a holistic approach and is a good complete course with clear start and end points. Overall it is a good resource that I wish that I had eight years ago when I started group work. --International Journal of Psychiatric Nursing Research
