Publisher's Synopsis

This is an essential resource for educators working to support emotional wellbeing in children and young people. Written by the team behind the Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA) training programme, it provides practical suggestions that can be implemented straight away to make a positive difference in the life of the young person.

The second edition of this bestselling guide has been fully updated and includes a new chapter on resilience as well as additional material on recognising and dealing with anxiety and anger. The chapters give a clear overview of each topic underpinned by the latest research in educational psychology, descriptions of vulnerabilities as well as case studies and suggestions for practical activities. Topics include:

  • self-esteem;
  • friendship skills;
  • social skills;
  • therapeutic stories;
  • dealing with loss and bereavement.

Designed for use with individuals, groups or whole classes, this will be vital reading for ELSA trainees as well as anyone wanting to provide the best possible support for the emotional wellbeing of the young people they work with.
