First published as Circle Time for Emotional Literacy, this new edition has been updated to reflect how the Circle Solutions philosophy and pedagogy can be used to build relationships and resilience for children and young people. Putting current research on wellbeing into practice, Circle Solutions addresses issues not incidents, solutions rather than problems, and strengths rather than deficits, providing a framework for student engagement and learning.  New to this edition: - a chapter on promoting the positive: thoughts, feelings and approaches - more anti-bullying strategies, with cyber-bullying covered explicitly  - a quick reference appendix of games  - ways of embedding Circle Solutions as a tool for wellbeing - updated and expanded resources   Activities and games included in the book promote positive communication skills, empathy and connectedness, class cohesion and co-operation, friendship skills and ethical behaviour.

Appendix 3: Useful Resources

The book is well written and has a well-structured layout. there are photocopiable resources and a games index, which is invaluable for finding and planning activities quickly...The book has inspired me to try out some of the ideas and even demonstrate them to colleagues. Were I a mainstream teacher, I would find it a useful resource to ensure all children are fully included in circle time.
