Drama Games for Those Who Like to Say No

Drama Games for Those Who Like to Say No

Chris Johnston's book will prove an inspirational guide for teachers and workshop leaders working with difficult students, youth groups, young offenders, and all those who currently take pleasure in saying 'no' to whatever is offered them. For some groups, drama games and activities need to be especially robust and engaging, and the dozens that appear in this book have been devised with this in mind - and then tested by their target players. The ultimate aim is to encourage challenging groups to engage, collaborate, negotiate and develop not just drama but also life skills.
