    DescriptionThis second edition of the highly successful "Helping Children to Build Self-Esteem" is packed with fun and effective activities to help children develop and maintain healthy self-esteem. New and updated material has been added including a section on running parent groups alongside children's groups, as well as a brand new layout, fresh illustrations, an expanded theoretical section and extra activities. Based on the author's extensive clinical experience, this activities book will equip and support teaching staff, therapists and carers in encouraging feelings of competence and self-worth in children and their families. It is primarily designed for use with individuals and groups of children aged 7-11, but the ideas can easily be adapted for both older and younger children and children with learning difficulties. This fully photocopiable resource is invaluable for anyone looking for creative, practical ways of nurturing self-esteem in children.

    Review quote
    "'The book is practical and positive....[It] is thoughtfully produced and is evidently grounded in practical experience. It will be useful for professionals working to develop children's self-esteem and confidence.' - Bulletin 'This practical guide has a fund of ideas describing how teachers can harness powerful young imaginations and help build self-esteem.' - The Teacher '...a rich resource in its own right, or to "pick and mix", incorporating activities into other ways of working, according to the needs of the children and one's own personal and professional preferences.' - YoungMinds 'The book will be of genuine interest and use for Special Educational Needs coordinators and class teachers alike.' - Education 3-13 'This...workbook is designed to assist children in moving from head information on self-esteem to heart experiences that [can] impact deeply on their sense of themselves....Deborah Plummer uses imagination and empowerment to move children and adults from discouragement to success....She shows again what people such as Ignatius Loyola and Virginia Satir knew - imagination can be a powerful tool for change.' - The Canadian Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Review 'This publication should find its way into resource libraries in schools and speech and language therapy departments as well as being generally available to parents and carers.' - Afasic News 'It contains clear instructions for people working with children to put together a group programme, and whilst Plummer emphasises helping children with speech and language difficulties, it would be easy to adapt the activities to other children.' - 0-19 Magazine"
