I have compiled lists of therapeutic questions to use with children or youth in counseling sessions. The topics are:
2- Feelings & Coping
3- Social Skills
4- Study skills
5- Self esteem
You can also check out version 2 of JENGA with the following topics:
2- Worry & Anxiety
3- All About Me
** Note: these questions can be adapted to use with pretty much any game. This is a great ice breaker and a way to focus on specific topics that the child may be struggling with.
Suggested setup for Jenga:
1) Print pages 3-12 (double sided)
3) I used a label maker to put a # on every Jenga piece from 1-48. You can also use permanent marker.
4) Time to play! Choose a topic that relates best to the child you're working with and use that list of questions during the game. You (or the child) will push a Jenga piece out of the tower, and then will ask the other player the question that corresponds to the # that is on their chosen Jenga piece.
** Alternative way:
If your JENGA pieces are not numbered, you can either close your eyes and pick a # on the sheet of paper, OR, cut up small numbers (1-48), put in a bowl or hat, and then choose a number each turn.
