Anxiety Solutions for Kids
50 Ways to Ride the Wave

Anxiety Solutions for Kids is a set of 50 cards with simple, practical, creative and fun activities for children who experience worry or anxiety from time to time.
For most people, flashes of worry, nervousness or apprehension happen every now and then. Such experiences serve us very well—they are part of a healthy warning system that develops as we learn from experience. However, sometimes worry can become an unwanted habit and cause all kinds of discomfort. This is when it tips over into anxiety and can become an excruciating and debilitating experience—wreaking havoc in mind, body and soul.
Many children experience anxiety. Whether it is anxiety caused by a particularly challenging circumstance, or generalised, free-floating worry for no apparent reason, this experience can be excruciating.
These cards are based on solution-focussed, strengths-based techniques used by experienced clinical psychologist, Selina Byrne, to help children with worry and anxiety, and to build their wellbeing and resilience. The techniques arise out of solution-focussed, strengths-based approaches, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), brain research, optimism theory, mindfulness practices, interpersonal therapy and behaviour models.
Combined with the delightful illustrations of Katie Jardine, these cards are perfect for 3 -14 year-olds.

Choosing Strengths

Everyone has strengths! Sometimes they are hidden and sometimes they shine like blazing lights. And sometimes, especially when things get tough, we may wonder where our strengths have gone!
We may think of strengths as qualities we inherit (such as patience, resilience or kindness), resources we gather (such as a house, a computer or a car) or skills we learn as we journey through life (such as a profession or other skills and talents such as fixing an engine, growing a garden or casting a fishing line). But we can also think of our strengths as choices we make.
We can choose to see ourselves as a victim or a survivor. We can choose to see the glass half-full or half-empty. We can choose to see ourselves as possessing hopes, dreams and untapped potential or as filled with deficits and problems. We can choose to focus on and practise a particular strength from a huge array of potential strengths. Choosing Strengths is a set of 36 beautifully presented cards.

Cope Cards for Little Kids

Bob Bellhouse, Adrian Osborne
Being able to solve problems and cope with difficulties are key developmental skills. They are fundamental to developing resilience and autonomy. When children are in their early years, they need the support of adults to develop these skills. Through kindergarten, transition to school and the early years, the sorts of social issues many children are grappling with include:
Learning basic social skills like; manners, smiling, welcoming, asking, appreciating
Learning about cooperative play; being aware of self and others, sharing and taking turns
Learning about fairness and being considerate
Learning to follow rules Learning how to be assertive; asking others to stop and how to join in.
The Cope Cards for Little Kids have been developed to help scaffold the teaching and learning process. They use soft friendly colours and a friendly 'monkey' character to engage children. They are intended to aid learning by providing a vocabulary; acting as a prompt; and providing a scaffold for thinking. The cards cover both helpful and unhelpful strategies and come with a comprehensive set of simple activities for use.

Funky Fish Feelings

These are fish with attitude, and some might bear an uncanny resemblance to people you know! Which one are you today? The flummoxed flounder? The cranky crab? What about the despondent dolphin or the shy shark?
These 48 quirky critters of the deep can be used in similar ways to The Bears and Stones …have feelings too! But each card also features a cute little seahorse named Farr Lapp, who plays the role of observer. Having an observer as a witness creates different ways of building conversations, and can turn a two-person dialogue into a ‘trialogue’.
What do you think the seahorse is seeing? Do you think the seahorse could have a different perspective from yours? If the seahorse knows the fish really well, might this change his response to the emotion displayed? Funky Fish Feelings will find many creative uses in the hands of teachers and human service workers, and the cards are ideal for icebreakers, storytelling, family sculpting exercises and therapeutic conversations. So whether you’re sailing on the high seas or paddling in the shallows, take a dip below the foam and say hello to these fabulous aquatic personalities!

Mindfulness on the Go

Includes 52 Cards and a 64-Page Illustrated Book, All in a Flip-Top Box with an Easel to Display Your Mindfulness Cards

Discover how to be mindful wherever you are - at home or work, on your daily commute or while travelling.
It is often challenging to weave mindfulness into our day as we get caught up in the busyness of life. It can feel overwhelming sometimes to know what to do and how to start doing something different and having to decide stops us doing anything at all. Mindfulness on the Go is designed to address this problem. The illustrated book introduces the essential pillars of mindfulness and how to cultivate it and the 52 cards offer a day-by-day invitation to put it into practice. There are two types of card: practice cards are mini meditations to do while you are out and about, and activity cards focus more on becoming aware of your habitual patterns of behaviour, as well as ways that mindfulness can help you to cultivate new one. You can deliberately choose an activity or practice card, or leave it up to chance. Picking a card randomly removes the decision-making and encourages a willingness to try what is suggested regardless of personal preference, thereby gently encouraging you to move out of your comfort zone. By focusing on just one thing per day, it makes it easier to remember rather than just feeling you should be mindful all the time. As you become familiar with the type of practices, you will find that you begin to do them without the card prompts, and mindfulness will become part of your daily life.

Stones Have Feelings Too

Knowing and understanding our feelings is important for healthy relationships. Being able to communicate feelings, and to 'reframe' them is at the heart of emotional literacy. In this pack of cards are 52 quirky, engaging, happy, sad, afraid, joyful and simply outrageous 'stone' characters who can help increase our understanding and recognition of feelings. These 'stoney' characters are brimming with emotions and their facial expressions and body language convey how they feel. There are no words on the front of the card, just the stones in all their 'feeling' glory. Flip the card over and there are three possible words for the feeling. Hopefully these words will help build a broader vocabulary of feelings and help show the often fine differences between degrees of feeling. An Innovative Resources product.

Symbols is a box of 100 evocative images that work as poems for the soul. A symbol is a metaphor--something that means something else. Metaphors and symbols work as short cuts--cosmic 'worm holes' to understanding and feelings. Symbols is a set of simple, free-hand line drawings of everyday objects that can suggest layers of meaning to the observer. Therapists who work with those struggling with grief and loss suggested this particular set of symbols. They have resonance with people grappling with the big questions in life.

Walking the Boundaries
Exploring everyday ethics in human services

Every human service profession, organisation and business is governed by the laws of the land. Most are held accountable to codes of conduct created from within their organisation or profession as well. But many practitioners—including social workers, counsellors, teachers and carers—face dozens of everyday ethical decisions regarding both clients and colleagues that may not be clear cut. What do you do when decisions call for actions that are not defined by the law or enshrined within a code of conduct? When there is no absolute right or wrong answer, where do you draw the boundaries? Walking the Boundaries offers 80 probing, surprising, challenging—even confronting—questions that reflect the ambiguities and complexities of professional practice. Designed by social workers for all human service practitioners.
Walking the Boundaries is not just about ‘doing no harm’ to clients, examining codes of conduct, or protecting practitioners from liability or litigation. This powerful, provocative set of cards is designed to help build the skills, knowledge, self-awareness and professional transparency that lie at the heart of respectful practice.

What Did You Say? What Did You Mean?

Jude Welton
Metaphors are particularly challenging for children with Asperger Syndrome (AS), because they tend to be literal thinkers.

Presents 60 common sayings in a fun, illustrated format, encouraging children to understand and play with metaphorical language. Although designed with children with Asperger Syndrome in mind, the cards are useful for all children. The cards are divided into two types: What Did You Say? cards which feature the metaphor and a fun illustration of its literal meaning, and corresponding What Do You Mean? cards which show the actual meaning of the saying. The accompanying booklet contains information and ideas for games and activities. Enjoyable and educational, these cards are great for teachers or parents to use in groups or in one-to-one sessions.
