"He Hit Me Back First!" Creative Visualization Activities for Parenting and Teaching.
Fugitt, Eva D.
Activities for home and school designed to help children become aware of their own inner authority and ability to choose are offered in this book. Techniques and activities are based on the principles of psychosynthesis, a comprehensive educational approach to human growth and development pioneered in 1911 by Italian psychiatrist Robert Assagioli. Psychosynthesis is described as a creative approach to the harmonious integration of the whole personality (the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of one's self) that utilizes the will, intuition, and creative imagination. Psychosynthesis applied to children is a highly modified version of that used in adult counseling. Basic techniques of creative imagination, "dis-identification," and development of will have been adapted to the child's level of growth. Concepts introduced at this level are that (1) children have many unique and varied parts within themselves, (2) they have a unifying center or "wise part" that they can trust, and (3) they control their own thoughts and behavior through the implementation of the will. Activities in the book progress in difficulty and are intended for children of all ages, all levels of intelligence, and all abilities. Examples of children's work are included for most exercises.
