'This book will educate and enthuse teachers about emotional literacy, while providing them with a host of practical suggestions for working with children to increase awareness, understanding and control of their feelings' - Professor Neil Frude, Clinical Psychologist, Western Mail

Translating the theory of emotional literacy into a practical, whole-school approach, this book is written for teachers, psychologists and lecturers wishing to introduce and implement:

o the rationale

o the practice

o the policy development.

Drawing on his practical experience as a consultant with a special school, the author provides everything you will need to deliver a full training programme on this subject, including activities and a Powerpoint presentation on a CD-rom. His work explains the importance of considering children's emotional life in school situations and gives practical skills to help nurture children's emotional development.
