Check out What’s New in the LSCI Bookstore April 3, 2017 By Signe Whitson The LSCI Bookstore features the three LSCI textbooks (Talking With Students in Conflict, Conflict in the Classroom, and The Angry Smile) used in our training courses, as well as books and journals written by our accomplished team of Master and Senior Trainers. Check out some of these resources, available on our site: The Art of Kid Whispering: Reaching the Inside Kid By Mark Freado and JC Chambers: This book is designed to encourage and assist counselors, parents, teachers and youth workers. The reader will find a description of what is meant by the term “Kid Whipsering” as well as important assumptions. The reader is then guided through a discussion of critical concepts that will equip them to be more effective at understanding kid’s costumes, reaching beyond that costume, addressing the inside kid, appreciating the young person’s story and challenging youth to make more effective, positive choices. Unwritten, The Story of a Living System By Lori DeSautels & Michael McKnight There’s never been a more chaotic and tenuous time in our nation’s educational story. Learning is the most natural thing human beings do. Yet, it seems the “harder” we work in schools helping our students to acquire the learning they need, the academic performances stay stagnant or lessen. Schools are not machines. Schools are a network of human beings who feel, think, behave, and function within a human system that is alive and never static. Schools are living systems! This system is wired to thrive, even through difficult times – Lori and Michael believe that we can begin to create wholeness and connection within our schools mindfully and by design. We can create places where all children thrive. How to Be Angry: An Assertive Anger Expression Group Guide for Kids & Teens By Signe Whitson Children often struggle to cope with anger, and angry feelings can boil over into aggression and destructive behaviour. This resource takes a different approach to anger, teaching children how to be angry effectively, rather than telling them not to be angry at all. This group program provides step-by-step guidelines for building anger management and assertive emotional expression skills through tailored lessons, group activities and thought-provoking discussions. Participants will learn specific skills such as: · Using I-Statements · Standing Up to Bullies · Disagreeing without Arguing · Making and Refusing Requests · Responding to Anger · Finding Win―Win Solutions Suitable for use with children and teenagers aged 5 – 18, this engaging resource will help children to overcome self-destructive patterns of passive, aggressive, and passive aggressive behaviour. It will be of great use to educators, counselors, social workers, youth care professionals, psychologists and parents. The Hopeful Brain By Paul Baker & Meredith White McMahon Over the past two decades, significant advancement has been made in understanding the role the brain plays in human behavior. Along with this new and exciting information emerges a responsibility for therapeutic professionals to have a solid understanding of the “brain basics” needed to support the lives of troubled children & youth. The Hopeful Brain authors provide a common-sense look at modern neuroscience and its application to positive youth development, psychology and educational support. Baker and White-McMahon take on the often daunting world of complex neuroscience and provide readers with practical strategies that are easy to use and apply across a variety of settings. This book explores the importance of using strength-based interventions and creating structured opportunities to “reimburse” troubled children and youth with positive experiences that teach and transform.
