Feelings Are Real: Group Activities for Children. Leader Manual, Primary Workbook, and Intermediate Workbook.
This set of three books includes a leader manual, primary workbook, and intermediate workbook designed to help children learn about feelings. The leader manual presents a rationale and orientation, discusses the structure and orientation, and provides instructions for the 10 group sessions for primary grades and the 10 group sessions for the intermediate grades. After an introductory session, these sessions are presented for primary grades: rules; sharing feelings; happy and sad; afraid and worried; anger; stress; relaxation; friendship; and self-concept. Activities for the primary grades include sharing favorite colors; identifying how it feels to be worried; coloring a "mad-ometer" which identifies the intensity of angry feelings; and focusing on ways to show friendship. These sessions are presented for intermediate grades: getting to know you; sharing; feelings; assertive behavior; aggressive and nonassertive behaviors; anger; my strengths; decision making; family relationships; and friendship. Activities for intermediate grades include making name tags; creating feeling words for letters of the alphabet; creating an assertive checklist; listing things that make the participant feel proud; making a family picture; and identification of qualities that constitute friendship.
