The Social Skills Game is a lively and exciting therapeutic board game for children and adolescents who experience difficulties with relationships, and enables them to explore and reflect upon adaptive interaction styles. The game addresses behavioural responses, cognitive processes, belief systems, interactive processes, belief systems, verbal and nonverbal communication, and assertiveness. The focus of the game is on a positive group experience and is non-threatening.

The game will allow children to explore adaptive interaction styles within a safe group and helps them to improve self-concept, whilst encouraging the generalisation of behaviour 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.

The game will allow children to explore adaptive interaction styles within a safe group and helps them to improve self-concept, whilst encouraging the generalisation of behaviour 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.
