About the Book

Talkabout for Children: Developing Self-Awareness and Self-Esteem is a bestselling professional workbook supporting educators and therapists who deliver social and relationship skills groups for children with social, emotional or behavioural difficulties. Resources include an assessment framework, planning and evaluation forms, a three-term intervention plan for schools, over 40 structured activity sessions focussing on self-awareness and self-esteem, and all the supplementary handouts and images needed to deliver the sessions. This second edition is presented with full-colour illustrations and handouts, and includes a new introduction by Alex Kelly reflecting on her own experiences of using the resources since they were first developed.
