Help primary school children develop social, emotional and friendship skills. CBT based. Can be used for individual interventions or group work. More information below.
Aims to help primary school children develop social, emotional and friendship skills. "The Giant's Desk" is a story about the friendship of a little elephant and a disaster-prone giant. Each of the 15 chapters has appealing illustrations and includes different activities, from worksheets, creative projects, role playing and quizzes. As children follow the story they learn listening, talking and social skills, exploring links between emotion, thought and behaviour (and how to manage these), increasing empathy and self-awareness. Themes include: giving and taking, supporting each other, trust, loyalty and honesty. CBT based. Written by a Consultant Clinical Psychologist (child & adolescent mental health). Use with 1-1 activities, small groups, or whole classes. Photocopiable/Printable. Facilitator notes included.
