Activities to Promote Self-Esteem and Resilience in Children From a Diverse Community, Including Asylum Seekers and Refugees


June 2004 | 72 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Refugee children have often experienced great disruption, violence and fear. They have frequently lost members of their family and may even have witnessed their deaths. They have left everything that is familiar and found themselves deposited in a completely different, strange and sometimes frightening environment.

Following the publication of New in Our Nation, a resource for older students, this book has been written to provide a similar resource for younger pupils. It offers the adult who supports these pupils a sensitive, honest and practical programme. This is a good balance between affective and skills based activities and, whilst recognising the uncertainty they face, the six sessions all provide a positive focus for the children and their families.

The programme includes:

"who we are

"important things to me

"similarities and differences

"what is it like to be different?

"my shield of strength.

The resource includes copiable material for participants personal files, and posters for display.

Useful book for students on placement in multicultural groupwork contexts.

I do not think this text book is suitable for undergraduate Education Studies students. I feel this may be more appropriate to use with PGCE trainees or for the BA QTS students who require materials to use with pupils from key stage 3 and upwards.
