Doggone Grief is designed to help kids share their feelings about a special person who died. Communication is the first step toward healing.
Players pick dog tokens and roll the dice to move around the game board. When the token lands on an "emotion" space - mad, sad, happy, scared or wild - the player picks a dog card. Emotion cards show dogs in various activities that reveal their grief emotions. On the back of the card is a statement about what is going on with the dog in the picture. The card also includes a question or two for players to answer about themselves or their loved one who died. Children who have played Doggone Grief say the game is a great way to share their grief feelings.
I've been a grief counselor over 20 years and have used this game often with elementary school aged children. It has photos of dogs on all of the cards along with a caption about what the dog might be feelings and experiencing. I like that you can play the game in a relatively short amount of time and that the questions are thoughtful and worded well. The kids love the dog photos and often remark and laugh about them. Playing the game is a fum way to express their thoughts and feelings. It's a great game.

I have used this game in both elementary and middle school with the kiddos I worked with and it is an excellent way to get them to open up about their emotions. I also use with adults that have cognitive delays and have found it to be a wonderful tool. I was introduced to Doggone Grief by an LPC that swears by it. Highly recommend.
