This resource includes a Decision Making Mat and social situation scenario cards that allow children to practice using the decision making process to make good decisions and solve problems.

The Decision Making Mat encourages children to ask themselves important questions as they try to figure out the best action they can take gin a hypothetical social situation. The prompts on the decision making mat are:

1.Identify the problem
2.Gather Relevant Information
3.Brainstorm Solutions
4.Identify Possible Consequences
5.Make A Choice
6. Take Action

(Number 7 is to evaluate the outcome. However, as these situations are hypothetical, children would not be able to do that so this step isn't included on the mat.)

How To Use

This activity can be used in individual and group counseling, or as part of a whole class discussion. This can be used by school social workers, school counselors, school psychologists, and teachers.
