GRAND IDEAS FROM WITHIN streamlines the power of the imagination to create success, while providing students with tools to manage both the cultural and internal stress and pressure they may feel from parents, peers, and teachers to perform and conform. Through the use of imagination, this groundbreaking 18-week program empowers students with family problems, disruptive behavior, anxiety, depression or bereavement to act responsibly, make smarter choices, improve character and ethical behavior, increase self esteem, and reduce discipline problems at school and at home. "Grand Ideas from Within is a fabulous resource to help teachers remind kids of what they once knew so well in pre-K - how to use their imaginations - for healing, stress reduction, goal-setting, and behavior management. These short, well-planned, and scripted lessons contain all the information needed for teachers, parents, health care professionals, and counselors to lead one child or a group of children to find their inner inventiveness, their God-given resourcefulness, and their Grand Ideas from Within."
