Helping Kids Heal Book


Helping Kids Heal Book

Ages: 6-12. By Rebecca Carman, CSW. This unique volume contains 75 "tried-and-true" activities to use with school-age children after an acutely traumatic event - such as a natural disaster or accident - or in response to the chronic trauma and loss experienced by children living in at-risk communities. Activities are broken down into 13 sections, ordered to approximate the natural sequence of recovery. Thus, children move from relaxation activities, to "reality testing" what has happened, to managing difficult emotions, to building a healthy sense of self-esteem, to achieving the capacity to give back to others. Anecdotes, tips, and vignettes bring each activity to life, and proven therapeutic principles are woven throughout the volume. It is chock-full of creative ideas for engaging young clients in the journey of healing. 117-pages, spiral bound.

The activities:
- Can all be used on a stand-alone basis
- Provide clear, step-by-step instructions
- Include reproducible activity sheets
