An effective prevention curriculum that helps students in grades 6-8 learn positive mental health concepts by developing self-acceptance, personal relationship skills, problem-solving and decision-making strategies, and skills to deal with troublesome emotions.

This curriculum is designed to teach students what is normal for their age group and to help them learn effective strategies for dealing with the challenges and problems of growing up.

PASSPORT is a self-contained developmental curriculum containing numerous learning activities for use in classrooms or small-group settings. The activities can also be adapted for use in individual counseling. The PASSPORT Program is strongly grounded in developmental theory and the principles of Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy.

Book Reviews

“I found this book particularly helpful in supplementing our developmental counseling curriculum. The activities were fun, easy to implement, and fresh. I particularly enjoyed the inclusion of discussion questions. This made follow-up and reflection a simple process. This is an excellent resource.”

—Maria McCabe, INSIGHT, Illinois School Counselor’s Association Newsletter

“I am impressed by this collection of activities. Each activity is well thought out and is age appropriate for its intended grade level. Some activities require gathering materials that might not be ordinarily found within a counselor’s office or rearranging the room to set up a particular kind of environment, but most do not require significant levels of preparation, a plus for busy school psychologists/counselors. The activities are interesting, varied, and appealing to children.”

—Ruth E. Garbett, Global School Psychology Network
