Synopsis

Social Stories for Kids in Conflict by John Ling

'Social Stories for Kids in Conflict' is a practical guide to help young people improve their behaviour. Designed to help all those who work and/or live with young people who have difficulties with their behaviours and relationships with others, this book is a practical guide to help young people become more aware of their behaviour and its effect on other people. Focusing on mediation (including communication, the unblocking of channels, the breaking down of barriers, the righting of wrongs, making amends, and restorative justice), the book includes: dialogues used by a neutral person to highlight difficulties and possible changes in behaviour; cartoons and other visual techniques that can be used to present alternative ways to discuss problems; examples of social stories covering personal stuff, daily routines, home life, social skills, homework, work and playtime, PE and games, as well as a guide to writing your own social stories; Powerpoint presentation for staff, parents and carers. Developed from work with children and young people with Autism, Asperger Syndrome, and related conditions, as well as troubled young people with no named condition, the ideas and techniques, can be used and modified to help all young people to become more aware of their behaviour and its effect on other people. This 2nd edition has been revised and updated and now includes an expanded section of social stories.
