Fun Games and Physical Activities to Help Heal Children Who Hurt : Get on Your Feet! Paperback / softback
by Beth Powell
Develop children's brains and bonds with this collection of no-tech, physical games, strategies and activities.
Ideal for children who have experienced neglect, abuse and trauma, these "real-world" experiences draw on therapeutic, trauma-focused-care play principles and promote positive attachment between child and caregivers. Explanations for how and why specific play themes and caregiver attitudes can help children's brain development enhance the text.
The book also shows how children learn to problem-solve real life situations by playing them out, finding workable solutions to their own problems, and increasing their resiliency.
Further benefits include better cause-effect thinking, impulse control, and increased cognitive and emotional functioning by practicing physical movements that exercise specific areas of the brain.
