Reviews for the comprehensive language guide

'For all those who wish to use the English language with virtuosity and precision whilst working in a social care or counselling setting. This language guide will be of great interest to academics and practitioners alike.'
- Jan G. Thivissen, Master of Science in Social Work, Lecturer at the University of Niederrhein

'What a wonderful resource for our social work students! I am truly impressed!'
- Dagmar Preiss-Allesch, Head of the International Office, EHB University Berlin

'People often ask "Why do we still need reference works, if everything can be looked up on the internet?" This book is a good example that shows that not everything can be found on the internet.'
- Wolfgang Dohrmann, Language Book Author, socialnet.de

'With this publication the helping professions have finally found a reliable source to support them in learning the English language and applying it in their professional practice.'
- Prof. Fritz Gründger, in: Soziale Arbeit, Deutsches Zentralinstitut für soziale Fragen (DZI)

'I would recommend this guide to any professional preparing to work in a health or social care setting in an English-speaking country.'
- Conny Fricke, Social Worker and Social Pedagogue, Transform Housing and Support, London

'This language guide has become part of my day-to-day practice.'
- Johannes Holz, Systemic Counsellor and Supervisor, Berlin

'Attempting to make accessible to the German reader the nuances and style of a language as delicate as English within care and therapeutic settings could be an almost impossible feat. I am truly amazed at the detail the authors have gone to in categorizing a range of settings, contexts and possible conversations...The presentation is very clear and easy to follow. A beautifully executed piece of work!'
- Susie Hayward, Psychotherapist und Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, London

Reviews

'Nadine Seiler has provided a powerful resource to enable the telling of clients' inside stories through the distance of working through projected play (...) Seiler's method is playful and fun for the child involved while providing both an assessment tool and a means of making a healthy, psyche-sensitive therapeutic intervention. The accompanying book offers clear and simple instructions (...) This is a very useful resource for therapists, social workers and health care professionals.'
- Mary Smail, Psychotherapist and Director of the Sesame Institute for Drama and Movement Therapy

'I am impressed with the tool [...]. The tool will be very beneficial to the social care field and will provide professionals with other dimensions of working, apart from just the use of policy and text book styles. The detail in the booklet is precise, descriptive and easy to follow. The use of photography is impressive.'
- Samantha Babb, Qualified Independent Social Worker and Drama and Film Writer

'This is an extremely creative and useful tool to use when working with children and exploring their emotions. As a social work practitioner within the Children and Families field I found the concept very innovative but equally simple and easy to follow. The accompanying booklet is extremely helpful, well structured and straightforward to use. (...) I particularly liked the 'Creative Activities' section which offers examples of using the animals in order to explore various circumstances within a child's life. (...) This really is an exciting, innovative and versatile toolkit which has a rightful place within the social sector.'
- Catherine Jackson, Senior Social Worker at a Local Authority in Wales

I used the toolkit with a child who usually gives one-worded answers and nods. Today he was enthusiastic and had lots to say about his family thanks to these minature animals and the guidance in the handbook! As a social worker I would most certainly recommend this for those doing direct work with children, who need to obtain a wealth of qualitative information in a short space of time; and who wish to remain child-focused.
- Nicole Louis, Independent Social Worker, London
