How to Use the Resources

How to use the resources

Worksheets and activities in this book are rooted in the theory and research based evidence of experts in the field of emotional literacy (such as Goleman, 2004 and Steiner, 1980). Creative interpersonal and intra-personal activities are combined with learning about emotional wellness, sharing, talking, thinking, feeling and doing.

Teachers can use the resouces in a step-by-step way, to teach emotional literacy by planning, implementing, assessing and record-keeping a quality curriculum. Psychological practitioners can integrate appropriate worksheets into whatever therapeutic model they use with a particular child, teenager or group. Worksheets are self explanatory and can also be used to keep youngsters creatively occupied while in a waiting room or whilst following up an activity.
