Creating Children's Art Games for Emotional Support

Game playing is a highly effective way of engaging children and has long been acknowledged as an important psychological intervention. Vicky Barber has compiled this book of games to help children to confront personal problems and issues in a light-hearted yet meaningful way.

These are games with a difference, as they must be constructed before they can be played. The creation aspect involves collaboration and cooperation within a team, and instils an empowering sense of ownership in the creators. By the time the game is ready to be played, children are confident, thoroughly engaged and ready to explore issues in a supportive environment. Each of the games has been tried, tested and adjusted by the author, and is proven to really work.

This book will be an essential tool for therapists, counsellors, social workers, youth workers and teachers supporting children and young people.
