This workbook for enhancing self esteem is formatted to be used either individually or by a group leader. The book is divided into phases of intervention to help individuals develop positive self esteem in a systematic, sequential approach. The first phase focuses on identity. Techniques in this phase help individuals to become more aware of who they are. The second phase, the strengths and weaknesses phase, includes techniques to help individuals identify attributes and areas of self which represent opportunities for improvement. The third phase focuses on nurturance. Techniques in this phase focus on the development of a social support system, learning how to filter feedback from the environment, and managing self-talk. The fourth phase, the maintenance phase, focuses on goal setting, risk taking and personal forecasting. Each technique has write-in space for the participant. Each activity also provides specific references to the book, Enhancing Self Esteem, which helps the leader understand the theory basis for the technique. In addition, a six-step model is included to assist the helping professional in developing discussion in a group or individual setting. Facilitators can use selected techniques from each phase without doing all the activities. Each technique also indicates the ages for which the activity is most appropriate and the time required and materials needed. (LLL)

Drama is increasingly being recognised as a valuable pedagogy for language learning as it can harness children‘s imaginations and stimulate their desire to communicate. Second Learning Language through Drama draws on current theories of additional and foreign language learning and illustrates through practical case studies how drama can be used to support the four key skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. Drawing on the work of an international group of practitioners who are all highly experienced in using drama for the purpose of second language learning, the book clearly explains key drama conventions and strategies and outlines the innovative ways they have been used to create enjoyable and stimulating classroom activities that allow for multiple ways of learning. Throughout the book the emphasis is on making language learning accessible and relevant to children and young people through creative, physically active and playful approaches. The strategies described are all highly flexible and readily adaptable to different teaching contexts. Specific themes include: Using stories and drama to motivate learners at all levels Drama, language learning and identity Assessment opportunities through process drama Issues of language learning and cultural empowerment Digital storytelling Film & drama aesthetics Second Language Learning through Drama will be of great interest to those studying on undergraduate and postgraduate courses and will serve as a highly valuable text to practitioners looking to incorporate the approaches described into their lessons and classroom activities.
