Editorial Reviews


This program is designed for in-school use by teachers, counselors, and others who share a need for teaching prosocial skills to prevent and reduce violence, to ease the transition of a child into a school structure that goes beyond the normal home/neighborhood experiences, and to respond to the knowledge that a child's social competence relates directly to his later adjustments to life. Since it is both remediary and developmental, it can be used to target specific skill development or enhancement. --Social Work with Groups --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I am a School Psychologist and I use this with preK and Kindergarten students. The lessons are easy to use and the teacher checklist at the back is really helpful in planning what skills to teach. I also love the elementary and adolescent Skillstreaming programs as well.

This book offers many creative suggestions and lessons on how to help a child develop his/her social skills. It's a tremendous resource for children with special needs although not limited to this specific group.
