Let's Talk about Living in a World with Violence: An Activity Book for School-Age Children.
Garbarino, James
This activity book provides a direct, hands-on educational tool to help children ages 7-11 process their feelings, thoughts, and experiences as they relate to violence. The workbook is designed to: (1) foster a dialogue between child and adult as well as among children in group settings, while acknowledging the child's desire for privacy; (2) help children discover the meaning of violence, that fear is normal, and that there are things children can do to feel better and safer, with help from caring adults; and (3) encourage a strengthening of the relationships with community resources that can create positive change for children and families. The workbook incorporates a number of writing and drawing activities dealing with how violence makes a child feel, the various settings in which violence occurs, and what children can do about violence. It also includes a list of 44 children's books about children who are brave and strong in the face of death and violence. A brief guide for teachers, counselors, and other professionals containing a list of 19 additional resources accompanies the activity book. (TJQ)
