The statements on the 250 game cards are intended to focus attention on kinds of thoughts, feelings, and actions that enhance healthy self esteem. The game does not teach "me first" as healthy self esteem. It does teach that healthy self esteem comes from developing in yourself the special qualities that you most admire. Qualities like a loving attitude, compassion for others, spirituality, self control, family togetherness, character, honesty, responsibility, impulse control and much more. The game also has setback cards and introduces the concept of six different setback coping options, both positive and negative.
With The Self-Esteem Game we can enter a child's belief system through game play. All to often kids focus their attention on the negative things that are being said about them. The Self Esteem Game allows children to learn to think of themselves as precious, valuable, human beings that deserve to feel good about themselves while having fun. In addition, many cards focus on being responsible for your own behavior and accepting the consequences of your actions.
The Self-Esteem Game was developed by Michael R. Sheehan Ph.D., a clinical psychologist to assist parents, teachers, and therapists in teaching the principals of healthy self-esteem. The Self Esteem Game is really too good of a tool for use just in therapy and counseling situations. Every kid ought to be exposed to a game that teaches him or her how to feel good about who they are as an individual.
