Therapeutic Groupwork with Children

Therapeutic Groupwork with Children

Therapeutic Groupwork with Children by Joost Drost & Sydney Bayley. This hands-on workbook is an invaluable resource for all professionals who work with young children, both in clinics and schools, including teachers, activity leaders and therapists. - Provides an overview of the book's basis in humanistic philosophy, a discussion of the role of group leaders and how to start and run a group. - Contains 40 varied group activities, some original and some more well known, each with clear guidelines, photocopiable worksheets and anecdotal evaluations. - Guidance is given on how to use the activities in a pick-and-mix approach, with a gradual build up from simple listening and turn-taking exercises to empathy, problem-solving and dealing with emotions. - Divided into activities for infants and juniors, they are designed to use different strengths within the children, including verbal, non-verbal, trust, imagination and physical. Using these activities in a group setting will create an environment where children feel listened to, accepted and valued, and in which they can grow emotionally.
