A guiding framework for how to support internalized behaviors
The Play Prescription: Using Play to Support Internalizing Behaviors explores internalizing behaviors such as anxiety, depression, and social withdrawal found in young children, ages 3 to 7. Behavioral symptoms are discussed, with a focus on child development and emotional competence. Dr. Liese discusses a range of research-supported interventions and prevention methods for children presenting symptoms and offers clear descriptions of educational strategies and implications for educators. In addition, sample handouts are included to send home to encourage parent support and involvement.
