Helping Children to Manage Stress

Photocopiable Activity Booklet to Support Wellbeing and Resilience

Illustrator
Facilitating the healthy management of stress is crucial for the social, psychological, and emotional wellbeing and resilience in children. Based on over thirty years of expertise, Deborah Plummer provides varied and straightforward activities for teachers, parents, and therapists to healthily engage with children and help them manage stress. This activity book allows space to explore stress and help children identify some of their worries, whilst also providing help on how to build skills and strategies that will help them recognise normal signs of stress and how to respond to these appropriately. It also explores the potential benefits and enjoyments of positive stress, allowing children to have a healthy relationship with difficult feelings.

This book is one of a series based on the use of imagination (I), mindful play (MP) and creative thinking (CT) to enhance social, psychological and emotional wellbeing and resilience in children. The accompanying ebook Using Imagination, Mindful Play and Creative Thinking to Support Wellbeing and Resilience in Children describes the theory and approach behind how these activities can significantly influence children's perceptions of themselves and the world.

Press reviews for: Helping Children to Manage Stress

Guy Shennan, therapist, consultant and trainer, author of Solution-Focused Practice: Effective Communication to Facilitate Change

This book is a treasure trove of activities and prompts for discussion, reflection and learning about managing stress. I love how the many strategies it contains are offered in a context of respect for the resourcefulness of children, whose "small triumphs of emotional self-care" we - and they - are encouraged to notice. Wonderful.
