From the Back Cover:

Hundreds of therapeutic activities designed to help children and adolescents cope with difficult health issues

Written to provide mental health professionals with a variety of activities to help children manage the physical and emotional challenges related to illness—be it chronic, temporary, or that of a family member—Therapeutic Activities for Children and Teens Coping with Health Issues presents more than two hundred curative, evidence-based, and age-appropriate activities and interventions that promote positive directions in overcoming obstacles and handling the stress, worry, and/or difficulties faced when dealing with illness.

Organized in a user-friendly format that allows busy professionals to quickly locate easy-to-follow activities, as well as step-by-step instructions for implementing them in a variety of settings, this comprehensive guide provides:

  • Sixteen chapters of activities designed to promote understanding, adaptation, and coping for children and adolescents experiencing health issues of their own or those of a family member
  • Five chapters that incorporate different approaches, such as humor, as well as a host of expanded topics, including grief, separation, and culture
  • Activities that help children deal with specific health issues, including body image, desensitization to medical implements, death, pain, motor skills, and more
  • Chapter introductions that include insightful theoretical overviews to support each method covered
  • An accompanying CD containing customizable and reproducible activities, activity templates, and easy-to-use patterns

The only guide available of its kind, Therapeutic Activities for Children and Teens Coping with Health Issues assists mental health practitioners as well as members of the pediatric healthcare team—including parents—in understanding and implementing culturally sensitive, evidence-based activities that support the well-being of children and adolescents.
