It's So Much Work to Be Your Friend (DVD)
Drawing on three decades of experience in residential schools, Rick Lavoie provides powerful strategies for teaching friendship skills in the classroom, the homefront, and the community.
First, you'll explore the causes and consequences of "social incompetence." Then, you'll gain field-tested advice on how to help children work through daily social struggles and go from being picked on and isolated to becoming accepted and involved.
Available in DVD format.
