Activities to Enhance Social, Emotional, and Problem-Solving Skills - 07 edition

Activities to Enhance Social, Emotional, and Problem-Solving Skills ()

Summary: Activities to Enhance Social, Emotional, and Problem-Solving Skills, by psychologists John Malouff and Nicola Schutte, provides descriptions of 76 engaging activities that can be used to teach children, adolescents, and adults valuable social, emotional, and problem-solving skills. Some of the skills taught include identifying and expressing one's own emotions, identifying emotions in others, coping with stressors, making and keeping friends, setting goals, and solvi moreng real-life problems. The game and challenge aspects of the activities engage the trainee in the activity, while the instructional aspects of the book explain to the trainee how and when to apply a skill in everyday life. The book provides background information on the value of the skills taught by the activities, guidance on how to use the activities to maximum effect, and examples of how various types of trainees reacted to the activities. Counselors, psychotherapists, teachers, and parents can use the activities to facilitate the development of important skills in maladjusted or well-adjusted individuals. Rhea Zakich, creator of the Ungame, wrote in the foreword for Activities to Enhance Social, Emotional, and Problem-Solving Skills: "I'm struck by the breadth and practicality of the subjects covered and I appreciate the suggested discussion topics at the end of each activity. . . . The fact that many of these exercises involve the entire person, body, mind and emotions, will help the participants retain what they learn and be more apt to transfer their learning to everyday life." less
