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, as well as teaching them to 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.


You will receive a zip file with the PowerPoint version as well as a text document containing the link to the Google Slides version.  Be sure you are NOT in presentation mode while playing, as the game pieces will not move. See the attached tutorial video for more information.


This game is also available as a hard copy and PDF download.
