Focusing on past experiences to begin the process of emotional healing, this book provides methods for helping children and adolescents experiencing depression, fear, hidden grief and unpredictable anger to release such emotional stress and develop their happiness and emotional well being. Devised by experienced counsellors, this book includes clear, step-by-step games and exercises for encouraging children's growth of self-awareness and reclaiming of self-esteem. The exercises, designed for work with both individual children and groups, provide imaginative formats for repairing the hurts of the past and for opening children to the full potential of their inner world.

In addition to the emotional release exercises there is guidance for personal development and counselling sessions, an introduction to sandplay therapy; work with art, drama and music; Gestalt methods, relaxation and visualisation formats; and survival tips for carers.
