How can counselors use contemporary understandings of the brain to boost children's social skills--such as empathy, kindness, patience, impulse control, self-esteem, and self-confidence--in meaningful and lasting ways? How can counseling be tailored to address the particular capabilities of children's brains when under duress? This film answers these questions by proposing two dramatic paradigm shifts from common social and emotional skills interventions. First, it invites counselors to broaden their focus from bullying prevention to developing a wealth of social and emotional skills in all children. Second, it proposes a new way of boosting children's skills; this approach is inspired by new research in neurobiology, mindfulness, and narrative practices that emphasizes how children's brains develop, learn, and change through experience. Packed with interviews with educators, consultants, and children of all ages, this title contains a thought-provoking theoretical backdrop, followed by footage of non-scripted live sessions in one second and one fourth grade classroom. Several life-transforming activities, metaphors, and experiences are illustrated and explained, and examples are provided of cultural practices that foster the development of communities of considerate children.
