: The activities in this invaluable resource will help with young people's positive views of themselves. Fun and easy-to-use, these activities will make a positive difference in the work of the instructor as well. No hard-to-find or expensive equipment is needed. Even when time and space are limited, in formal or informal settings, the 111 short and easy-to-use activities involve working in groups to undertake simple yet challenging activities that promote creativity, problem solving, co-operation, and understanding of individual and group needs. They require inclusive, team-like behaviors, and encourage fallibility and risk taking. Some new, some traditional, all are ready for use in schools, youth work, and the outdoors, where they have been tried and tested over 40 years with young people from diverse backgrounds with various individual and collective needs. Authors Paul Lee and Louise Bishop have also used these activities in adult personal development and team-leadership courses. Anyone from age 8 upwards will enjoy the challenges of taking part. For young people, so often surrounded by negative images that undermine self-esteem and society's confidence in them, it is especially valuable to help them improve their self-image and respond positively to other people's concerns. Wholly inclusive, this book can be used regardless of age, ability, gender, strength, or agility.
