- Pam Allen - Child and Adolescent Mental Health Development Coordinator, Sheffield
- Ben Harper - Educational Psychologist, Lands End

Following the publication of New in Our Nation, a resource for older students, this book has been written to provide a similar resource for younger pupils. It offers the adult who supports these pupils a sensitive, honest and practical programme. This is a good balance between affective and skills based activities and, whilst recognising the uncertainty they face, the six sessions all provide a positive focus for the children and their families.
The programme includes:
"who we are
"important things to me
"similarities and differences
"what is it like to be different?
"my shield of strength.
The resource includes copiable material for participants personal files, and posters for display.
A good insight and great tools for working with children
Useful book for students on placement in multicultural groupwork contexts.
I do not think this text book is suitable for undergraduate Education Studies students. I feel this may be more appropriate to use with PGCE trainees or for the BA QTS students who require materials to use with pupils from key stage 3 and upwards.
