Overview

Hopeful children are happier children who become more successful, productive adults. In Hope for the Journey, the authors, all professional psychologists who work with children and families, believe that adults can work with children to build hope and combat helplessness. Using stories that children construct and tell about themselves, this book takes the reader step-by-step through the hope-building process.Based on theory and research but written for the lay reader—the parent, teacher, and anyone who works with children—Hope for the Journey is a guide for infusing hopefulness in children. Chapters address parents working with children’s normal, everyday problems, more difficult problems, and physical problems. Also included are discussions of how teachers can foster hope from primary through secondary school. The authors present fascinating case histories accompanied by simple line drawings that children can color in as they follow along with the stories. Appendixes include The Young Children Hope Scale for boys and girls as well as a comprehensive list of children’s books on hope-related issues.This lively, engaging book is a valuable reference filled with real-life examples and motivation for parents, teachers, and children.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Stories offer children a natural way to learn concepts of hopefulness and productive working toward goals, suggest the authors, three psychologists and a pediatrics professor. In explaining how children can be helped to find hope in their daily lives, the authors describe the stages in people's thinking, particularly about goals. After identifying a goal or problemthat is, something that needs changingpeople have to devise ways to reach that goal. Once, this effort, called waypower here, is activated, willpower, the ability to "get psyched" and stick to the task, is required. According to the authors, the application of both waypower and willpower yields hope. Dozens of stories about children conquering adversity, from everyday problems like being afraid of the dark to more serious issues like anxiety and depression, are offered. Parents and teachers can customize these stories to deliver a message of hope to individual children facing any circumstances. An annotated bibliography of children's books on hope-related topics is invaluable. There may be little earth-shakingly new in this approach to helping kids develop positive views of themselves and their futures, but it's unlikely parents could hear too often a reminder of how powerful a synergy is created by the blend of story and hope.
