“Changing Family Game, The”. (PTG 066). - Ages 8+ with 2 to 6 players
by Berthold Berg, Ph.D.
This engaging board game gives therapists a convenient and very focused way to address the needs of children affected by divorce. Using principles of cognitive restructuring and behavioral rehearsal, it helps children develop more realistic and adaptive attitudes about their parents' divorce. Specifically, it addresses the following nonadaptive attitudes:
Peer Ridicule and Avoidance, Paternal Blame, Maternal Blame, Fear of Abandonment, and Hope of Reconciliation. And it introduces children to new behavioral options that can help them adjust to the single parent family and visitation.
Two brief inventories (included) help you determine what kind of problems the child or family is experiencing. You can then select game cards that address these problems.
