Based on his extensive experience as a special educator, counselor, and group leader, the author provides therapists and educators with clear, creative, and effective methods for helping people of all ages help themselves. Each exercise in this valuable book seeks to enhance personal growth through communication and insight in a safe and nonthreatening manner... Enhancing self-esteem as well as supporting social skills awareness is the foundation for all self-growth and therapeutic work. I am aware of most of the published material available for enhancing self-esteem and social skills awareness, and I believe this book is a must for any professional who works with groups in any kind of setting."

I can see teachers using these activities to enhance positive feelings and behavior in the classroom, especially for middle and high school students."
