This is a playful and practical approach to solving difficulties faced by children where practically all problems can be seen as skills that need to be developed. This method invites children to become active participants in skill-building and solution-finding. A book buzzing with ideas, stories and suggestions.
# Converting problems into skills.
# Agreeing on the skill to learn # Naming the skill and choosing a power creature
# Gathering supporters and building confidence # Planning the celebration and going public
# Practising the skill and creating reminders "Kids' Skills gives solutions back to kids - and to their parents and teachers and youth leaders.
It has nothing to do with 'being positive' but is a simple, 15-step, practical approach that equips anyone to work with children to help them become the experts." The foreword by Michael Durrant - Director, Brief Therapy Institute of Sydney Written by Ben Furman. Softcover, 165 x 245mm, 144pp
