Cool, Calm, and Confident

A Workbook to help kids learn assertiveness skills

Lisa Schwab

Assertiveness is the ability to stand up for yourself and your rights in a healthy and appropriate manner without infringing on the rights of others. This is the healthy middle ground between passiveness-letting others walk all over you-and aggression-forcing your desires on others without any regard for their rights. The easy and effective assertiveness-building games, worksheets, and activities in this book help kids recognize their self-worth, strengths, and right to stand up for themselves when others bully them or try to take advantage of them.
When kids feel good about themselves, it is much easier for them to have the strength and courage to act assertively. For this reason, many of the activities in this workbook help children build self-esteem and learn to believe in themselves. Self-assured, assertive children are less likely to be picked on by their peers and less likely to resort to bullying others to build confidence. Using this workbook is an easy and effective way to teach passive and aggressive children to respect themselves and others-a skill that will prove useful in childhood, in their teenage years, and throughout their lives.

This wise, eloquent, and practical book illuminates the nature of self-compassion and offers easy-to-follow, scientifically grounded steps for incorporating it into daily life.

Optimistic Child

A Proven Program to Safeguard Children Against Depression and Build Lifelong Resilience

Martin E P Seligman

Offers parents, teachers, and coaches a well-validated program to prevent depression in children.

As Seligman states in his new afterword for this edition, "Teaching children optimism is more, I realized, than just correcting pessimism . . . It is the creation of a positive strength, a sunny but solid future-mindedness that can be deployed throughout life - not only to fight depression and to come back from failure, but also to be the foundation of success and vitality."

Wrong Stone

Russell Deal

I want you to build me a wall with only perfect stones, the big architect said. All the stones tried to put their best faces forward. They hid their ugly bits. They tried to climb to the top of the pile. But there was one stone that didnt seem to fit...anywhere! He was the Wrong Stone and all the other stones were laughing at him. This 32-page picture book has exquisite, full-colour illustrations throughout. Enjoy the jokes, pranks and celebration of difference in this heart-warming story for kids and bigger kids. This book has an important place in counselling and clinical therapeutic practice where it may just constitute a tipping point - a small but mighty prompt for change and hope.
