Because the activites were interest-provoking and different from much of the regular classroom curriculum, the students were enthusiastic about the sessions. It was also rewarding to see the 'light bulb' go on when students started taking ownership for their own thoughts and feelings and stepping out of the victim role. --Rebecca Schmitz, School Social Work Journal
Ann Vernon has developed a curriculum that provides school counselors with lessons on all different facets of social and emotional barriers. . . The author provides actual scenarios that students can understand and relate to. . . The curriculum embraces the goal of positive behavior and flexible thinking. Topics presented in the lessons reflect peer perception, cliques, transition issues, and social pressures. . . a great resource for school counselors. --Deborah Hardy, New York State School Counselors Association Newsletter
It is critical for school districts to select a program that is empirically-based, cost-effective, and user-friendly. You will be delighted to know that Dr. Ann Vernon's emotional education curriculum meet all of the above criteria. . . . Dr. Vernon presents a framework of emotional education with a total of 210 experiential activities that are applications of Dr. Albert Ellis' rational emotive behavioral therapy. . . . I believe these two books are ideal for educators, counselors, and school psychologists who are looking for resources to foster healthy social and emotional development in their students. --Tony Wu, NCSP
