Katie loves her fortress where she feels safe and in control. However, when she ventures out into the village, she feels the need to wear armor to protect herself. She is suffering from social anxiety.
Katie sees the other kids playing and realizes she is missing out on important relationships and having fun. As she reflects on her experience, she realizes that safety can also be found in relationships. After she changes her thoughts, she gains the confidence to leave her armor behind and approach others.
The game incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy interventions and techniques to modify self-talk and challenge irrational thoughts. It also helps identify the value in relationships and to consider the cost of hiding away from others. Kids will be able to identify coping skills to help in social situations to feel more comfortable when they are in situations that are difficult for them.
The book/game cover, gameboard, and cards are printed on 110 lb cardstock. The interior pages of the book are printed on 64 lb paper. It is bound by a 6mm spiral.
