Murray White was the first British author to publish a book on Circle Time and his classic Magic Circles helped to raise the profile and popularity of Circle Time during the 90s. This new and revised edition provides both the theoretical underpinnings and practical advice you need to help raise self-esteem through Circle Time. The resource also includes a 60 minute audio CD to introduce guided imagery to help build self-esteem. It takes the listener through a number of journeys, helping to develop imagination, improve concentration and increase self - confidence.



The book provides a range of exciting activities to use in Circle Time to develop a sense of:



· security



· identity



· belonging



· purpose



· competence



· well-being



The benefits of participation in this process both for individuals and society are clearly explained. The ability to communicate well, take sensible risks, make wise decisions, be flexible, deal with conflict and stress, solve problems and get along with others are all enhanced by this experience. To take account of the popularity of the first edition among adults, circle activities are now included especially for their use. Everyone will benefit from the Circle Times in this book.



Murray White represents the U.K. on the International Council for Self Esteem and emerges as the earliest and most significant influence on the establishment of Circle Time in the UK.
