Exploring My Self-Esteem is a nonthreatening game that draws on each child's experiences and emotions, revealing for the therapist how children see themselves and how they typically deal with their feelings. Sentence completion cards deal directly with self-esteem issues, while other game elements elicit clinical information indirectly. Players have the opportunity, for example, to tell stories about various aspects of their world, thereby giving the therapist a chance to examine feelings, relationships, and responses to the events presented in the stories.
The therapist can select meaningful material from the child's stories and incorporate it in the child's treatment. As the game is played, the therapist can tell stories, too, modeling self-expression and showing children that feelings are normal and that the impulses resulting from strong feelings can be managed. This is an exceptional tool for improving self-esteem.
The game can be played by a therapist and up to 5 children.
