Talkabout for teenagers: Developing social & emotional communication skills
Talkabout for teenagers: Developing social & emotional communication skills is a program to help professionals develop group sessions on social and relationship skills for teenagers with social, emotional or behavioral difficulties. It offers a way to assess each child's level of social skill to help identify where to begin teaching with a mix of activities, group discussions, worksheets and handouts. This edition has been thoroughly updated and edited for a US audience.
The book begins with an introduction covering the theory behind the talkabout approach (where basic skills are taught first and more complex skills last) and key points for setting up and running the group sessions. The assessment includes a student interview and self-assessment and a social skills rating assessment. The program is then broken out into 5 levels and can be started wherever the group needs to begin. Activities are offered at the end of the book along with forms for session planning and evaluation.
