When playing this game, students will learn how to focus on emotional expression, learn about relationships, and anger.
Designed for children and adolescents who experience difficulties with peer relationships, The Anti-Bullying Game enables both victims and bullies to understand the dynamics underlying bullying behaviour and helps them to explore more adaptive interaction styles. Exploring the mechanisms behind passive and provocative behaviour, the game focuses on interactive processes, communication, belief systems and assertiveness.
Providing an opportunity for exploration within a safe group, the game helps young people to understand the dynamics of the power differential between victim and bully. It promotes positive self-esteem and encourages behaviour to be taken over into other settings.
The game comprises game board, counters, dice and four sets of colour-coded cards arranged in categories corresponding to coloured shapes on the board.
Lifegames is a series of therapeutic board games for children and adolescents, devised to facilitate the understanding and disclosure of the complex feelings experienced by children and adolescents when they are confronted with traumatic life events.
Each game has been carefully developed utilising an integrative psychotherapy model which incorporates systemic, cognitivebehavioural, humanistic and psychodynamic orientations. The games address factual issues and focus on emotional expression, belief systems, cognitive processes, behavioural responses, relationships, fantasies, memories and dreams. They provide a safe, boundaried space where children and adolescents may explore their inner feelings, and can be used to answer questions which children may have been afraid to ask.
Designed to be flexible, the games can be tailored towards the pace of the therapeutic process. They may be used with groups and with individuals and they should always be played with a therapist. The recommended age range for participants is 6 - 16 years, although it is possible for the clinician to adapt games for working with younger or older children. Where appropriate, the therapist may participate as a co-player or remain solely in the role of facilitator.
