In this fun CBT game, children get a chance to play doctor by finding remedies to The Rejection Infection. They will use their first aid kit to apply their remedy to each of the common rejection infection's symptoms, which include Anger, Mind Reading, Isolation, and Negative Self-Talk. Remedies include coping skills, helpful self-talk, kindness acts, empathy, finding the truth (taking perspective), and supports.
The product includes 32 rejecting scenarios, (perceived and real rejection), 32 examples of each of the symptoms and remedies, a reference card, game boards, and worksheets to be used simultaneously or for homework. Color friendly pages included.
This game was created for children with hypersensitivity to rejection, social skill challenges, ADHD, Asperger's, or Autism to teach the important life skill of handling rejection (real or perceived). Although, typical children may enjoy the game as well. The content is best used with children that have developed abstract thinking, and have average cognitive abilities.
The game may be played throughout the year or in short increments. The cards may also be used outside of the game for role playing or discussion.
