Self-Esteem + Card Game = Fun Learning!
The Self-Esteem Card Game was designed as a Solution Focused Counseling intervention tool. Not only perfect for rapport-building and starting meaningful conversations, it is a non-threatening assessment tool, focusing on the assets and goals of client (or student, if using in the school counseling setting.) The prompts invite players to reflect on their already-existing strengths and hopes, reinforcing a positive self-concept, sense of self-efficacy, and best possible future self.
Playing this game is also a great relationship-builder; helping new students in a class or members of a small group to get to know each other better, all the while building confidence and focusing on the positive.
Why Is Self-Esteem Important?
Building self-esteem helps young people to cultivate a strong internal locus of control & sense of agency and lay a foundation from which to create an empowered life. The questions and prompts in the Self-Esteem Card Game encourage players to express their unique voices and perceptions, with a primary focus on strengths, social supports, coping skills and other protective factors.
