Ninja Nightmare is a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy board game designed to help children process nightmares to reduce their occurrence.  It incorporates techniques from Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Narrative Therapy. This game will help children become more comfortable talking about their fears and the details of their nightmares.  They can rescript the nightmare to imagine a hero coming in to save them. 


This game also teaches coping skills.  The child will learn to calm self through visualization, thought stopping and replacement, and through making behavioral changes to avoid triggers to nightmares.  As with most therapy games, incorporating these skills in a game format will help to bypass defense mechanisms and help the child feel more at ease disclosing frightening information.
