Talkabout Activities provides practical activities for social skills training. It contains 225 group activities and is aimed primarily at people familiar with Talkabout, although it can be used by anyone running social skills groups and will complement other social-skills training programmes. The first section includes general group cohesion activities that can be used at any stage as starting or finishing activities. The remainder of the resource is divided into six different levels, covering self- and other awareness; awareness of communication; body language; the way we talk; conversational skills; and assertiveness. Each level is structured so that there are activities that correspond to every skill and worksheet within Talkabout. These activities can be used to prompt group discussion or to practice relevant skills, but also can be used as starting or finishing activities. Within each group activity, the resource outlines any required materials and preparation and which are the relevant Talkabout worksheets, for those using Talkabout as the framework for their social skills training. Illustrated by Alex Kelly, this book can be used with children, adolescents or adults and is an invaluable resource to anyone running social skills groups.
