GROWTH THROUGH ACTIVITIES

Roger's Bookshop

A careful and successful use of this informed and imaginative new handbook will increase the chances that significant personal and social growth will result from taking part in activity, whether it is a party game or social action.

At the book's heart is the importance of reviewing activities in ways that will be at least as involving and inspiring as the activities themselves.

Roger Greenaway is a trainer, writer and researcher with wide experience in how activities can promote personal and social development. He is the author of More Than Activities (SCF), Playback: A Guide to Reviewing Activities (The Duke of Edinburgh's Award/Endeavour Scotland) and Reviewing Adventures: Why and How? (National Association for Outdoor Education).

His definition of 'activities' is a broad one that includes:

  • Sports
  • Recreational activities
  • Co-operative Games
  • Training Exercises
  • Residential Experiences
  • Challenges at work
  • Action that benefits the community or the environment.
Growth Through Activities shows how all these activities provide considerable opportunities for growth and development - but only if there is: clear commitment to pursue such goals and the know how to get there.

This important new handbook is designed to encourage a broad-based approach in work with young people.

It is an approach that brings together practical ideas from a wide range of experience-based methods to learning and development - in other words: 'Growth Through Activities'.
