About this Item

The Feelings Book was designed to provide an easy to use format for fostering the "Three "E's," otherwise referred to as: ? Emotional identification, ? Emotional understanding, ? Emotional regulation. With The Feelings Book, children are provided with a simple visual tool for: (a) selecting and expressing one's emotional state, (b) considering the intensity of that emotion, and (c) comparing the emotional event to other events that evoked a similar reaction. Additionally, children are provided with an easy reference guide for (d) selecting appropriate coping strategies that coincide with their ever changing emotional states. In clinical therapy sessions and social skills groups, the authors implemented these visual supports with great success, as each tool can be individualized to the child's unique needs as well as a family's preferences in regards to coping strategies that match the expectations of their household and culture. In addition to their own clinical experiences, the authors' work is strongly influenced by Dr. Tony Attwood and Carol Gray, who have provided insiht into the development of learning supports for children and adolescents with social learning disabilities. The Feelings Book is appropriate for any child who has difficulty with emotional identification, understanding, and regulation. It is most suitable for children in the elementary school years. Additionally, children who have difficulty expressing their emotions in appropriate ways may also benefit from intervention guided by the Feelings Book. Before using this support, a child should already have a basic vocabulary of emotion words, reading skills at the 1st grade level or above, and basic drawing or writing skills (or a caregiver willing to take dictation). Each Feelings Book kit includes: ? A 17-page laminated book; ? A dry erase marker, and ? "Step-by-Step; Lessons for Implementing the Feelings Book", a guide providing support for fostering the "Three E's.". Bookseller Inventory # 12927
