Emotional Literacy for Adolescent Mental Health: Experiential counselling (Paperback)Patricia Sherwood (author)
- We can order this
In Emotional Literacy for Adolescent Mental Health, Dr Patricia Sherwood recognises that traditional talk therapy may not always be the best approach. Adolescence is defined as a time when personal privacy is important and verbal communication is often confined to peers in whom young people feel they can trust.
This groundbreaking book therefore offers a diversity of non-verbal experiential exercises, skills and interventions for working with adolescents who may be facing particular challenges at a complex time in their lives. The activities are drawn from the artistic therapies, including drama and movement, clay therapy, and sand play as well as meditation, nature-based and animal-assisted therapies.
These practical methodologies and approaches are shown to be beneficial when addressing a range of adolescent mental health conditions such as low self-esteem, self-judgement, anxiety, depression, anger, addiction, self-harm, psychosis and despair.
