Get Real with Boys In Mind was designed for individual counseling with boys and boys groups. Topics cover boys self-esteem, friendship, social emotional literacy, relationship & social skills, media literacy, the "Boy Code," ideas about masculinity & gender, hope, optimism, and best possible future self. Although this game was designed with Boys In Mind, it works for all genders and girls groups & individual counseling with girls too!
Perfect for rapport building, as an icebreaker, lunch bunches, integrated into your already existing small group counseling with boys curriculum, and game to play on the fly when students visit you. Can also be used in the classroom as social emotional journal writing prompts too!
The Conversations Challenges focus on building social emotional skills, relationship-building, emotional literacy, media literacy, friendship, the normalizing of feelings, and self-esteem, in fun, non-threatening, & shame-free ways.
The 180 Conversation Starters and Challenges are grouped into recommended elementary and middle school grades from 2nd-8th and by types of questions. It works stand alone.
And because it is COLOR CODED, Get Real With Boys In Mind can be used with store bought games, like UNO®, Jenga®, Trouble®, Pick-Up-Stick®, Checkers®, and Don't Break The Ice®, into therapeutic interventions!
Also included are 3 SETS of awesomely designed labels for JENGA®. That is 162 labels to use with JEGNA ®! Just print them out and choose which ones you want to use! (The labels to use with Jenga ® labels are also colored coded, grouped by age & types of conversation challenges.)
The Conversation Starter Challenges are divided into 6 categories: TOP 3, Would You Rather, True or False, What If, Two Truths & A Lie, and Act Out. There are games within the game!
On a more serious note: Get Real with Boys was designed with the following In Mind:
**How can boys can be strong and emotionally sensitive without being shamed?
**How can we create alternatives to common gendered stereotypes in effort to reframe and re-signify what masculinity means?
**How is being vulnerable brave?
**How can boys develop stronger connections with others, given that we are wired for it?
**How can we support young people to build media literacy skills?
**How can we invite young people to join us in this conversation in a way that is developmentally appropriate and FUN?!
Ink-Friendly set of cards included as well!
