This package includes the games needed for 6 of the popular play therapy game techniques listed in the book "101 Favorite Play Therapy Techniques".

Games include: 1. Timber Tumble (Feelings); 2. Giant Pick-Up-Sticks (Pairing Color with Feelings); 3. Magnetic Checkers (Rules); 4. Don't Break the Ice (Anger Management); 5. Super Topplers - Domino Rally (Consequences); and 6. a 19" x 11" Pool Table Set (Multi-Issues).

Descriptions of these games, and the play therapy game techniques they are used for, are given below. Detailed instructions and rationale for the techniques can be found in the book "101 Favorite Play Therapy Techniques".

1. Timber Tumble (Feelings) - This classic stacking game (identical to Jenga) features 48 solid wood game pieces which are packed in a tin storage container (Ages 8+)

Play Therapy Game Technique - "Tumbling Feelings: Easing Children into the Counseling Relationship".In this game, FEELING words are placed on each of the blocks. When a player removes a block they read the feeling and tell when they once felt that way. Complete directions and rationale for this technique can be found on page 171.

2. Giant Pick-Up Sticks (Pairing Color with Feelings) - This game includes 30 brightly colored wooden sticks in Red, Yellow, Blue, Green and Black. These EXTRA LONG pick-up sticks (9.75") are EASIER for children to pick up and have rounded points for SAFETY. They come packed in a reusable storage tube (Ages 6+).

Play Therapy Game Technique - "The Pick-Up Sticks Game" (Using the "Color Your Life" Technique). This game pairs colors with FEELINGS. As players pick up sticks they describe a time when they had the feeling associated with the COLOR of the stick chosen. Detailed directions and rationale for this technique can be found on page 145.

3. Magnetic Checkers Game (Ego Strength/Risk Taking) - Includes magnetic pieces that won't slip off the board - perfect for playrooms, classrooms and on-the-go therapy. Builds strategic thinking skills through game play. Includes 34 magnetic game pieces, plastic folding board with built in storage for all components and an activity guide. Board measures 9.5" square (Ages 8+)

Play Therapy Game Technique - "Checkers: Rules or No Rules". This game helps children develop ego-strength, self control and leadership skills. Children can either follow the rules (particularly useful for children who need to develop self-control) or they can make their own rules (useful for children who are withdrawn or need to develop leadership skills). Complete directions and rationale for this game can be found on page 137.

4. Don't Break the Ice (Anger Management) - This fun game is used by many therapists to help young children discuss, release and manage feelings of anger. Game includes 33 "ice" blocks, 2 mallets, 1 Polar Bear and Ice Tray Frame (Ages 3+).

Play Therapy Game Technique- "Pounding Away Bad Feelings". In this game the child discusses a situation that caused them to have a negative feeling and then taps out a block of ice to get rid of the feeling. The therapist helps the child think about ways to avoid/handle the situation in the future. Detailed instructions and rationale for this game can be found on page 142.

5. Super Topplers (Consequences) - Super Topplers is an economical Domino Rally - a classic game that develops concentration and demonstrates the concept of cause and effect.
Set them up and knock them over! The "stand-up" people are perfect for making domino runs. The unique design lets them stand up easily on their own. Create a long row of "kids" and then knock them down. When they fall it is not only EXCITING but the principle of cause & effect is demonstrated as well. Includes 100 plastic "kids" 1.5" tall in three different poses, and five different colors (Ages 4+).

Play Therapy Game Technique "Consequences - Reaching the Oppositional Defiant Adolescent". In this game each domino represents an action that led to a negative outcome. The players then discuss what action could be changed to avoid the negative outcome from occurring. Complete instructions and rationale for this technique can be found on page 155.

6. Pool Table Set (Multi-Issues) - Set includes a 19" x 11" table top pool table, 1 triangle, 2 cue sticks and 11 colored balls (Ages 3+).

Play Therapy Game Technique "Pool Play - Helping Children Get Out From Behind the Eight Ball".In this game pool balls are paired with colors. When a player successfully pockets a ball, they discuss a time when they felt the feeling associated with the COLOR of the ball (or choose to lose a turn). Complete directions and rationale for this technique can be found on page 165.
