Publisher's Synopsis

Talkabout for Teenagers is a comprehensive program of professional resources to help you deliver group sessions on social and relationship skills for teenagers with social, emotional or behavioral difficulties. The program follows the Talkabout hierarchy, building self-awareness and self-esteem first, then moving on to non-verbal communication, talking, friendship and assertiveness.

Features include:

  • a social skills assessment framework enables you to evaluate a young person's social skills and identify where to start work
  • the huge range of activities, group discussions and handouts for each level of the program mean that you have everything you need to deliver a successful social skills curriculum
  • group cohesion activities help you to ensure that all participants benefit fully from attending your group sessions.

Suitable for Speech and Language Pathologists, Teachers, Social Workers, Child Psychologists and School Counselors, Talkabout for Teenagers has been thoroughly updated and edited for a US audience.

"This next installment of a proven social communication skills curriculum series does not disappoint! The straightforward writing, clear protocols for assessment and practical guidance are exactly what busy teachers and therapists need to help them plan and implement social learning lessons for students." (From the foreword by Debbie Meringolo MA, MS and Nancy Tarshis MA, MS, CCC/SLP of Social Thinking).
