Talking is for All
How Children and Teenagers Develop Emotional Literacy

Second Edition
  • Betty Rudd - Teacher and Chartered Counselling Psychologist, East Sussex

February 2009 | 200 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

In one volume, Talking Is for All provides updated new editions of Betty Rudd's three bestsellers: Talking is for Kids, Talking is for Us and Talking is for Teens.

Providing a unified approach for nurturing emotional development in youngsters between the ages of 4 and 19 years, this book and CD-ROM provide an activity and worksheet–packed resource for professionals working with children and adolescents. Implementation of an emotional literacy initiative within the whole school curriculum or in therapy sessions becomes practical for the facilitator and fun for the participants.

This book is ideal for working with young people in the classroom, within small groups, in therapeutic contexts. The author provides:

  • Practical activities and resources
  • Illustrations, stories, and cartoons
  • Assessment and record-keeping advice

Three age-appropriate sections include a description of the stages of emotional development and all the activities suited to that stage. This material combines theory and research findings on emotional health and puts them into a flexible, proactive program which supports emotional wellness and resiliency.
