This resource provides the therapist with a collection of over 50 tried and tested structured group techniques for use in helping people with communication difficulties. Now in its sixth edition the book is well know to all those professions involved in helping clients with problems of this kind. The exercises have been especially designed to encourage active participation and a careful step-by-step approach is detailed for each one to make practical implementation easier.
Key features for this edition include:
- Inclusion of exercises for children as well as adults
- More emphasis on non-verbal exercises than in previous editions
- Similar types of exercises grouped together for easy reference
- Clear and easy-to-use layout of previous editions retained
Although originally written for use by occupational therapists Action Speaks Louder has proved to be an invaluable resource for anyone involved in interpersonal skills training, where the emphasis is on helping people with communication difficulties to help themselves.
"This book affords an insight into some of those tactics used to develop greater group participation ... In an age when health professions are challenged to stimulate their clients to consider actively their individual health status ... this book is a means to encourage a more personalized approach to much needed self-scrutiny ... The authors are to be congratulated for the work they put into such a volume. I recommend it to professionals students alike in preparing for their work situations."
