This wide-ranging and resourceful book by the author of House of Games and The Improvisation Game is particularly aimed at those working with young people and adults in so-called "difficult" groups. Young offenders, youth groups and recalcitrant students will benefit from activities for engagement, collaboration, spontaneity and negotiation.

There are detailed scenarios for longer improvisation and a training section aims to prepare workshop leaders for this kind of challenging work. The majority of activities will be of particular benefit for exploring social and emotional skills while others will be of interest to those looking to deepen creativity, imagination and enjoyment.
