Children often put into behavior what they cannot put into words. Helping them to understand events and circumstances that cause them to experience confusion and fear can be a challenge indeed. And helping youngsters put their thoughts and lives back on track can be tougher still.
Windows II: A Book for Those with a Heart for Helping Kids Heal, written by Dr. James Sutton, contains a collection of 24 compelling, therapeutic stories that address specific themes. Themes include Adversity, Anger, Belief, Compassion, Empathy, Healing, Loss, Recovery, Restitution and Spontaneity. Each story is followed by questions and activities pertaining to its theme, making the book a great resource that can be utilized to:
Assist a child who has been traumatized or hurt by abuse or loss,
Encourage a small group of youngsters to share their insights and experiences, or
Enhance character, understanding and the expression of empathy and support in the classroom.
