Peer Power Workbook : Applying Peer Helper Skills by Judith A. Tindall

The Peer Power Program is a peer training program designed for middle, high school, and higher education students, focusing on 8 core skills: Attending, Empathizing, Summarizing, Questioning, Genuineness, Assertiveness, Confrontation, and Problem Solving. Through a series of exercises, games, and self-awareness techniques, youth and adults involved in the program can gain the basic communication and mediation skills necessary to effectively help their peers. Picking up where Book One left off, the Peer Power, Book Two: Workbook brings the participating students through a series of Modules, focusing on how to apply the core skills learned in the first half of the program in real life situations. This volume covers topics such as drugs and alcohol abuse, taking care of you through stress management, leadership training, tutoring, group work, enhancing sexual health, disordered eating, suicide prevention, coping with loss, highway traffic safety, bullying reduction, mentoring, crisis management, character education, problem gambling prevention, and tobacco prevention.


Dr.Tindall provides the reader an in-depth understanding of such issues as drug and alcohol abuse, stress management, tutoring, eating disorders, suicide prevention, coping with loss, bullying reduction, problem gambling, and youth tobacco issues. Whether the reader is working in group settings with adults to address any of these topics or is just interested in knowing more about any of the topics, this workbook is the place to find all of the answers...Whether you are working with visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learners, you will have all the tools you need. - Dr. DeeAnne Vonde, The Peer News

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
