From the Bureau For At-Risk Youth, this is a superb collection of 75 exceptionally engaging and creative activities to help children recover from trauma and loss, for ages 5-12. The activities are presented in a sequence that moves from relaxation exercises to reality testing, building self-esteem, and activities for reaching out again, approximating the natural sequence of recovery.
This intelligently designed resource can be used as an individual workbook or with the use of reproducible activity sheets. Anecdotes, helpful tips, and lively illustrations will catch children's interest, and proven therapeutic principles woven through the book will assist parents and teachers in engaging young children in the journey of healing. Highly recommended!!
