'This book is written to assist leaders teaching in life skills groups. It has three main teaching areas, friendship, social skills and assertion, 24 sessions and a brief section at the end on counselling including when professional help is appropriate. The book is well defined with clearly defined sessions and leaders notes. It is easy to read especially as a planning tool. This book is well set out with some pages, which can be photocopied for use within the group, Each teaching area could be used alone...This book would be a useful resource for a department especially if life skills/assertion courses are being set up for the first time.'
- OTPLD

'This resource is a complete course in social skills for teenagers and particularly appropriate for those with mild learning difficulties. The course is made up of lots of situations for discussions, role-play and guidelines for course leaders making it easy for those who have not dealt with this subject before. The four main subjects covered in the course are friendship, social skills training, assertiveness and counselling. Included in these sections are making new friends, loneliness, barriers in friendship, social and relationship rules, self-confidence and shyness, saying no, compliments and complaints. This book contains much excellent material which would help many unconfident and wary teenagers.'
- Youthwork

'The course is divided into three parts: part one deals with the nature and maintenance of friendship; part two with interpersonal social skills; part three with assertiveness -and believe it or not - 'counselling'. The aim here is not to produce young amateur counsellors so much as to foster the attainment of a deeper, more meaningful level of communication and support in personal relationships.'
