These are games with a difference, as they must be constructed before they can be played. The creation aspect involves collaboration and co-operation within a team, and instils an empowering sense of ownership in the creators. By the time the game is ready to be played, children are confident, thoroughly engaged and ready to explore issues in a supportive environment. Each game has been tried and tested by the author, and is proven to really work.
This book will be useful to anyone working with children and young people and hoping to empower them in a fun and creative way.
The book contains 51 games and is divided into the following sections:
Part One: Warm-Up Games
Part Two: Creating Games for Improving Self-Esteem and Confidence
Part Three: Creating Games for Raising Self-Awareness
