Description

Containing over 50 activities (exercises, worksheets and games) which can be used in working with children, adolescents or families, this text aims to encourage creativity in therapy and assist in talking with children to facilitate change. These activities have been designed to be used as therapeutic tools to aid a variety of approaches, and whilst they can be used alone are also designed to supplement the approach taken by a therapist. Intended to help the therapist gain rapport with clients who have problems with verbal communication, the text is also cross-referenced by problem and activity, as well as by the features of each game/exercise (for example, "Rewards"). Details required for each activity are given, as is age range where appropriate. All the illustrations and worksheets in the book are copyright free.show more
