Book Description Paul H. Brookes Publishing Co., 2008. Softcover. Condition: New. When it comes to organizing workshops for siblings of children with special health and developmental needs, Sibshops is just what communities need. The enormously popular Sibshop model has been used in more than 2 communities in eight countries, and the long-awaited revision of this exemplary guide makes it easier than ever to create and run successful, cost-effective sibling support group programs. Sibshop programs provide opportunities for brothers and sisters of children with special needs to obtain peer support and education within a highly recreational context. Organizers and families appreciate that the workshops take a wellness approach, and the siblings who attend the workshops appreciate that they're fun and engaging. Highly practical and user-friendly, Sibshops is filled with straightforward instructions, photocopiable forms, more than 1 fun games and activities, and sage guidance on how to start, fund, and run a Sibshop. Essential for agencies that serve families of children with disabilities, social workers, parent-to-parent programs, early intervention programs, developmental disability councils, child life specialists, and parents, this guidebook offers an inexpensive and easy-to-implement solution to addressing siblings' needs in a way everyone can enjoy. Don Meyer has been the leading voice in our profession in recognizing the special needs of brothers and sisters who have siblings with disabilities. His work with siblings has received international acclaim as being straightforward, fun, and effective with siblings of all ages. For the past two decades, Sibshops has been used extensively as the premier guide for professionals designing and implementing interactive workshops to help siblings confront the special issues they face. Now he and Dr. Pat Vadasy have revised this fundamental text to include new activities aimed at a new generation of brothers and sisters. Seller Inventory # 25308
