Building self-esteem and social skills requires self-awareness of your emotional needs. This social skills group activity provides an opportunity to identify and discuss what one's needs are in a friendship, specific to when they are feeling negative feelings, such as anger, bored, sadness, and hurt.
With the help of a checklist of defined character traits, students will be able to conclude if their needs are being met in their friendship and then decide the next self-care step they want to take, (ie. asking for support, expressing gratitude, or ending the friendship).
Worksheet 1 includes a shopping checklist of friendship behaviors that commonly meet emotional needs. Space is provided to write or draw personalized needs.
Worksheet 2 includes a returns checklist of friendship behaviors that are unsupportive and dismissive of a friend's emotional needs. Following a discussion, this specific worksheet provides an opportunity to role play boundary setting with their personal examples.
Additional pages provide the same content but include diverse clip art images, color friendly versions, and blank spaces for drawing or writing personal examples.
