Editorial Reviews

Review

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 is a must have for anyone working with young children, teachers, mental health, or preschool teachers. Often we assume that these young children come to us knowing certain skills but they may not. This book helps fill the gaps.

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.
