A Walking Contradiction

Take a glimpse of what is going on in my mind. I am a shy, humorous and crazy fool. A psychology nerd, hopeless romantic and music addict .

"Because in the end, none of us have very long on this earth. Life is fleeting. And if you’re ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky when the stars are strung across the velvety night. And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day … make a wish and think of me. Make your life spectacular. I know I did.” - Robin Williams (Jack 1996)

I have searched and searched for printable “Jenga” questions to use in social work sessions and found none! I found lists of questions but none that I could print onto file labels and stick onto my “Jumbling Towers” game.

I went ahead and typed up questions and printed them on color coded labels depending on the category (social skills, self-esteem, coping skills, anger, getting to know you etc.)

Updated link to my TPT site here

Categories:

-Green:  Getting to Know You, Ice Breakers       

-Blue:     Social Skills

-Yellow:  Self-Esteem/Feelings

-Red:      Coping Skills/Anger

Schoolsocialworkerblog sells downloads (foe Avery file folder labels 1/3 cut) of each categoryfor $4 here.  You can click here to view the jenga post I created.

Candy Self-Expression Activity: This is a simple and fun activity great for early stages of a group when you’re focusing on rapport building and group cohesion. It is also highly adaptable to specific treatment goals and modalities.
  • Write out a coded list that assigns a question or task to each color. Click here for examples of lists for feelings and anger related questions.  A “get to know you” example is pictured above (source)
  • Give each group member a handful or funsize packet of candy or fruit snacks.
  • Read the instructions for a color and let each group member respond according to how many candies of that color they have. Group members can eat the candy as they go along. 
  • Processing Questions: What did you learn?; How are you similar to other members?; How are you different?; Did anything surprise you?; etc.
  • Another Use for colored candy: Feelings tic-tac-toe

Creative Termination Activities: Termination is a highly important part of every therapeutic relationship that should be addressed throughout each stage of the process.  While many adult clients have the ability to easily think back to their experience in therapy, for youth this is often more difficult.  Because of this I like to provide clients with some sort of physical representation of their time in therapy that will help them reflect on their experiences, highlight their strengths, remind them of what they learned and provide them with tools they can use to help prevent regression (ex. coping tools/CBT reminders, resources, etc).  These activities lets you both reflect on their time in therapy and transition out of services in an engaging way.

I love this!
