Structured Therapeutic Activity Sessions
Meditation and Movement is an accessible series of structured relaxation and self-awareness sessions to help strengthen students' self-control, resilience and respect for both themselves and others. This course of fourteen one-hour structured sessions is suitable for groups of children, teens and youths, and especially beneficial for, but not limited to, use in schools with pupils with disabilities, special educational needs, self-esteem issues or behavioural difficulties. The course combines skills from different disciplines, and includes: meditation practices; therapeutic writing and talking tasks; movement and psychodrama play activities; and breathing, posture and movement techniques found in some martial arts. Complete with clear and full instructions and photocopiable worksheets, Meditation and Movement is straightforward enough for any enthusiastic non-'expert' leader to use with ease. An ideal course text for school teachers, school counsellors and psychologists, these structured sessions will also appeal to a variety of societies and associations, such as Buddhist, martial arts and drama groups.
