Description of this Book

This photocopiable activity book helps teens and tweens who are feeling voiceless, ineffective or fearful in response to events at a world, community or individual level. It incorporates exercises using art and craft, nutrition, mindfulness, yoga and other movement based activities. This book offers dozens of suggestions, interventions, and activities for ways that tweens and teens can care for their physical and mental health, including managing life's stressors, how to recognize 'red flags' in a relationship, and listening to their body's intuition more often. Ideal for mental health counselors, social workers, program coordinators, and other providers working with this age group, it can also be used by parents.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Bonnie Thomas is unparalleled in her ability to create therapeutic books for young people. In her newest book, Creative Coping Skills for Teens and Tweens, she speaks directly to teens and tweens in ways that communicate respect and assumption of competence, giving them the tools they need to navigate this difficult transition period in their lives. There are so many beautifully creative choices that this could easily be the only book that you need to turn to when seeking activities in the areas of Self Care, Coping, and Creative Expression for this age group. This book is a gift to therapists, teachers, and parents but most especially for teens and tweens themselves. -- Karla Helbert, LPC. C-IAYT, E-RYT, Author of Finding Your Own Way to Grieve: A Creative Activity Workbook for Kids & Teens on the Autism Spectrum, Yoga for Grief & Loss, and The Chakras in Grief & Trauma
