The Brighter Little Minds series uses stories to bring about positive psychological changes in children and young people. Now, this guide for teachers and parents provides fun activities and advice on how to build on and learn from the stories to help children dealing with issues such as anger management, bullying, panic attacks, autism, low self-esteem, disability, feeling left out, fear of the dark, sleep problems, depression, worrying, and much more. The stories also teach children about learning self-control, following rules, working together, developing empathy and autonomy, being accepted for who you are, thinking outside the box, making friends, accepting diversity, having fun, feeling safe and much more.
With plenty of colourful pictures and original ideas, Exploring the Brighter Little Minds Series is an essential companion guide, helping teachers, parents and therapists to get the best out of these engaging and therapeutic stories. This guide includes activities for groups and individuals, and ideas on how to incorporate them into your lesson plan.
