Children and young people who 'act out' and present challenging behaviour need active forms of communication and expression. "Drama for Better Behaviour" provides indirect and enjoyable ways of exploring issues around trust, thinking about others and managing difficult feelings. The emphasis is on achievement and on having good experiences of being with others, being listened to and feeling supported. "Drama for Better Behaviour" may be used with small or large groups facilitated by a school practitioner, play worker, therapist or group leader. The book is organised around images and metaphors - with over a hundred activities addressing such issues as feeling safe, resilience, emotional literacy, problem solving, celebrating achievement and coping with endings. With guidance on how to set up a group, set ground rules and structure sessions, this practical resource will be invaluable for those who are looking for safe, creative and enjoyable ways of engaging children who challenge.
