This training program, which includes 72 classroom and school wide activities, is built around Three Basic Rules: being kind to ourselves, being kind to one another, and being kind to this space; and The Kindness Pledge: seeking to be positive, putting down put-downs, honoring our differences, discovering our similarities, healing our hurts, listening to one another, honoring heroes, reaching higher for success, and living our dreams. During the program, students are rewarded and recognized for their acts of kindness. Cultivating Kindness promotes a positive school environment, lowers tension among groups, decreases the number of disciplinary reports, and teaches students the social skills they need to be successful adults.

All young people can benefit from a safe, supportive place to “just talk” with caring peers and an attentive adult about the issues that really matter to them. Talk with Teens About What Matters to Them gives you the resources you need to create that place through guided small-group discussions. These discussions provide teens with opportunities for articulating their feelings, building self-esteem, affirming themselves, and more. The discussion sessions in this
support teens’ social and emotional development;
reach out to young people using proven methods;
help teens feel more in control of their lives;
help build self-esteem and self-awareness in teens;
focus on topics important to teens which encompasses areas such as stress, identity, feelings, relationships, family, and the future;
give teens practice in problem solving and goal setting; and
help young people feel less alone, having realized that they have much in common with one another.
Each step-by-step discussion session is clear, self-contained, and many include reproducible handouts. Introductory and background materials offer practical tips and guidance, allowing even less-experienced group leaders to feel prepared and confident in their role. Ideal for advising teachers, counselors, and youth workers in all kinds of school and group settings, this book meets the American School Counselor Association’s national standards for academic, career, and personal/social and emotional development.
