Life Management Skills books originated from an ongoing practical need observed in mental health settings. These handouts can be used in treatment as a launching pad for activities, an organizational tool, a visual aid, a tangible reminder of information presented, and as a method for building rapport.
Life Management Skills handouts are adaptable and have a broad usage enabling therapists, social workers, nurses, teachers, psychologists, counselors and other professionals to focus on specific goals with their specified populations. They are designed for specific well-defined purposes, and activity-based, allowing for extensive client involvement. The graphic representations are intentionally different from handout to handout in typestyle, art and design to increase visual appeal, provide variety and clarify meaning. The purchaser of the book can make unlimited copies of the handouts for use by clients.
Volume V topics include: abuse, aging, coping skills, grief, interpersonal skills, leisure, making changes, medication management, parenting, positive attitude, recovery, relationships, self-esteem, self-expression and supports.
