This unique book has been recently developed by a very experienced NZ counsellor who needed resources to help explain the concepts of personal and private to young clients with a developmental disability, who otherwise struggle to understand them. John Hibbs has worked extensively with disabled young people to assist them to understand their sexuality and appropriate behaviour.
This illustrated, colourful book, with its easy to read sentences and explanations, helps young readers learn about personal and private boundaries and how to respect them.
A valuable new tool for counsellors, psychologists, therapists and teachers seeking to reinforce appropriate behaviour relating to what’s personal and private.
