The Talking, Feeling, and Doing Game: One of the most popular tools in child psychotherapy! Throughout the game, players move around the board and land on different colored spaces. Depending on the color of the space, a player will draw either a Talking, Feeling, or Doing Card. Each of the cards includes questions or prompts that are not anxiety provoking, and some that are slightly anxiety provoking. If the child responds, they receive a plastic chip. At the end of the game, the player with the most chips wins. This game can be used with up to 4-5 players, and is valuable in the treatment of learning-disabled children, and with children who can reveal themselves more freely but who may also need a respite from more anxiety provoking therapeutic endeavors.
Stop, Relax, and Think Board Game: Very popular board game that teaches impulsive children motor control, relaxation skills, how to express their feelings and how to problem solve.
