How (and Why) to Get Students Talking

In our digital era, young people need a safe, supportive place to connect and “just talk” with caring peers and an attentive adult. With more inclusive language, new discussion topics about social media, and a revised introduction, this updated edition of How (and Why) to Get Students Talking addresses the unique issues faced by today’s middle and high school students. Through guided group discussions, young people gain self-awareness, build important verbal communication skills, cope with difficult emotions, practice problem-solving, and more.

Written by prolific author and award winning education expert, Dr. Jean Sunde Peterson, this book’s guided conversations utilize evidence-informed ways to reach out to young people and address their social-emotional development.  The discussions can be easily adapted and customized to meet your specific programmatic needs and youth population. Introductory and background materials prepare group leaders of all experience levels to feel confident as discussion facilitators. 

Includes digital content with reproducible handouts from the book.
