This counseling game was designed to help children identify goals, set objectives, and create a plan to achieve their goals. There are four categories of cards: “Goal Setting,” “Time to Reflect,” “Time is Ticking,” and “Removing the Mask.” It incorporates solutions focused ideas by reflecting on successes from the past and achievable goals for the future. It also includes self esteem activities to identify positive qualities about self and recognizing how differences are an asset instead of a liability. Social skills are addressed, as part of being confident is being honest and transparent with other people. Children will have an opportunity to identify barriers to social engagement or to fulfilling goals they had set.
While this game focuses on goal setting for a new year, it could be used throughout the year as goal setting is needed. Other significant times might be the beginning of a school year or around the time of the child’s birthday.
