This is a programme to train young people how to be therapeutic mentors to younger children, with mentoring workshop outlines and creative, therapeutic activities to use.
Peer mentoring is mutually beneficial: being a mentor can help young people in conflict situations who may not engage easily with adult intervention, and it also has therapeutic benefits for younger mentees. As well as training sessions for the mentors, the book provides outlines of mentoring workshops on issues such as bullying, conflict with parents, parental separation and change and transition. Creative ideas to use in the sessions, such as games, relaxation techniques, role play, and reframing activities, are provided, with photocopiable materials.
Suitable for use with mentors aged 14-18 and mentees aged 9-13, this is an ideal resource to train peer mentors in therapeutic mentoring and for mentors to use in their sessions.

The KidsKope approach trains young people aged 14 to 18 as mentors to facilitate mentoring sessions with 9 to 13 year-olds to understand, explore and cope with conflict they experience, including bullying, parental separation, conflict with parents, being a young carer, and change and transition, among others... Thus, in addition to practical approaches to facilitating peer mentoring, the training sessions provide resources to encourage mentors to understand what the specific behaviours of children and young people may be communicating. -- Kate Martin, independent consultant and director, Common Room Consulting * Children & Young People Now *
