This highly illustrated, practical resource is designed to help teachers or therapists to work through self-esteem and relationship skills within a group setting in a structured way. It was originally written for young adults with a learning disability, it has also been used successfully with children with learning disabilities and those who present with social skills difficulties.

This title contains illustrated, photocopiable group activities and worksheets to address self-image, identity and self-confidence as well as the different types of relationship, the qualities of friends and some of the skills involved in improving and developing relationships. Illustrated by the author, this hands-on groupwork resource is ideal for speech & language therapists, teachers, occupational therapists, community learning disability nurses and anyone working in the field of learning disability.
