Practice to make a difference.

Dealing with Feeling 2ed (Incl CD-ROM) (New Edition of Bestseller)

This new edition of the bestselling Dealing with Feeling provides teachers of children aged 5-8 with structured opportunities to develop their emotional literacy and emotional well-being. As before, it is firmly supported by a wealth of research which links children's mental and physical health to the development of emotional literacy.

In this second edition, Tina Rae emphasises the development of emotional literacy skills and specifically the development of an emotional vocabulary, empathy, tolerance, resilience and motivation. The focus upon managing more complex and uncomfortable feelings is central to the programme and pupils are introduced to a variety of strategies and techniques which can be applied across a broad range of contexts. The use of role play to develop joint problem solving skills is unique, as is the way in which solution-focused strategies and personal construct psychology permeates the worksheet activities, self-reflection activities and take-home tasks.

Packed with teacher-friendly sessions, this book clearly fulfils the requirements of the PSCHE curriculum and Healthy Schools agenda whilst also complimenting and building upon many of the themes in the SEAL curriculum (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning).
