Activities to Help During Family Transitions Children raised in stable, favorable environments usually grow up to be educated, productive, and emotionally healthy members of society.
Activities to Help During Family Transitions Children raised in stable, favorable environments usually grow up to be educated, productive, and emotionally healthy members of society. However, not all children are that fortunate; they may experience transitional obstacles (i.e., parental divorce, death of a close family member, foster care, serious emotional or health problems, etc.) that greatly impact their development and feelings of self-worth. While some events have minor and temporary effects that can be easily overcome, others can be traumatizing and detrimental.
Counselors, teachers, social workers, or parents responsible for a “child in turmoil” will find this book extremely useful. All the therapeutic activities in this book are based on an effective combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy and solution-focused approach. They are also designed to promote positive growth and address certain issues (e.g., loss, feelings of rejection, anger control, etc.), while teaching children vital life strategies and skills reaching their full potential and self-actualization. With active participation, and patience and kindness from supportive adults, children can learn to overcome harmful, self-defeating emotions and behaviors.
Also included are fun bonus materials to give children that “extra boost” of encouragement: “Activity Participation Contract,” “Rewards List,” and “Points Bank Book.”
