Drama Games for Those Who Like to Say No

Chris Johnston Price: $16.95

Drama Games are a unique way to empower young people

Drama Games for Those Who Like to Say No is a quick-fire resource book for those working with difficult/reluctant students, youth groups and young offenders

Particularly those intent on saying "No" to whatever is offered them.

For these groups, drama games and activities need to be especially robust and engaging

The Games in this book have been devised with this in mind

And then tried and tested

Each game includes clear instructions on -

How to Play

Notes on the Benefits of the Game

And advice on age range, number of players and timing

Following the 90 games and exercises aimed at developing core skills, the book then offers scenarios for a series of improvisational challenges that test participants' abilities in mediation, communication, negotiation, assertiveness and managing emotions

Also included is a special collection of games aimed at preparing teachers and workshop leaders for facilitating challenging sessions

The ultimate aim is to encourage reluctant participants to engage and collaborate

And develop not just skills for drama, but skills for life
