Many kinds of reader would benefit from reading this book. It is well written and, although it is specifically targeted at therapists and teachers seeking to develop young people's emotional intelligence, it is full of practical applications designed for use by special needs teachers as well as teachers and instructors responsible for promoting wellbeing.
Suzanne Darley PhD, co-author of The Expressive Arts Activity Book
Joiner's book is an invaluable asset for anyone striving to teach emotional intelligence, whether in a counseling, educational or camp setting. Her upbeat approach and clear objectives for each activity make the work widely accessible and engaging. This volume will prove to be a well-worn companion for those who love to work with children.
The Big Book of Therapeutic Activity Ideas has been valuable in helping to plan creative and motivating activities and is a wonderful resource for professionals seeking to integrate creative art-based interventions.
