After nearly 2 years of browsing TpT and using various resources for my professional use as a School Based Mental Health Therapist, I finally took the plunge and decided to create my own store. Here is my very first (FREE) product! Since this is brand new for me, I thought what better to start with than a rapport building activity?
When beginning therapy with a child, the most important first step is building a safe and trusting relationship between the child and the therapist. At least the first 3-5 sessions should focus on building the therapeutic relationship and trust within that relationship. With children, it is even more effective to incorporate FUN into that process. This product can be used with most any game that includes various colors (cards, board games etc.). Simply have the child answer a question that coordinates with the color card they have drawn or the game spot they have landed on. These questions are intended to gather information about the child, their life, their emotions, and improve their ability to engage in a conversation with you.
Since this is my very first TpT product, please feel free to lease feedback to help me make improvements and changes as I embark on this new journey! Also, please follow along or check back for updates and more products to come!
Enjoy the process,
