I love this idea. Give him a slew of envelopes, each one with a specific condition. Examples are: Open when you are feeling sick. Open when you need motivation. Open when work is aggravating you. Open when you need to remember how much I love you.
Group Activity Idea: Applying CBT to so called “love songs”: This would be fun to do with a CBT group, or individual client, that is learning to recognize unhelpful thinking styles. Great for teenagers!
I’m sitting in my office making “therapeutic jenga” to play with my kids during sessions. Each piece they pull has a question on it! What a brilliant idea! Imagine the possibilities in the classroom :)
another visual activity easy to share and make with kids. You could do more in depth work with this initial tool: Life stories. Social work, therapy, transition from fostering to leaving care or adoption. A timeline of loss.
