I bought this book to prepare some social skills groups for secondary school children. Although there are some good points for the older ages, i felt they were not detailed enough or gave the worksheets to support the activities. It's an expensive book for not a lot of practical advice. To heavily balanced towards younger aged groups, as usual... It's really hard to find a programme for children of 12-18 year olds. Have a good think about what you need from a programme before paying out for this.
