A practical resource for therapists or support staff with over 50 activities focused on improving self-awareness and self-esteem. Aimed at adults with an intellectual disability (learning disability) or older children with special needs. Adapted from the Talkabout for Children series with some similar activities, but many are adapted to be more appropriate for this age group. Includes a short assessment, worksheets and practical suggestions to make groups work successfully including 15 group cohesion activities, an intervention plan and monitoring/evaluation forms. Most activities are for groups but some are adaptable for 1-1 work.
- a short assessment of self-awareness and self-esteem
- a year's worth of work on self-awareness and self-esteem including 50 activities and some worksheets
- practical suggestions to make your group work successful including 25 group cohesion activities
- a plan for intervention, and forms for monitoring and evaluation. This resource continues to use the Talkabout hierarchical approach to teaching skills, that is, basic self-awareness skills are taught prior to more complex skills such as social skills and friendship skills. This also means that this resource is designed to be used logically from topic 1 through to topic 8. Most of the activities are more suited to working in a group setting but some of them can be adapted for one-to-one work.
