Riding Life’s Emotional Waves is a game for adolescents who struggle with big emotions, including anger, anxiety, and depression. It helps to normalize emotional waves that come and go, helping kids to realize they will be alright on the other side. It takes away the worry that they will always feel out of control.


The cards address triggers for emotions, goals for the future, processing emotions, and finding solutions to cope. It is a low-key way to get children to consider the impact of life situations and the normal roller-coaster of emotions that teens face. They will be able to identify sources of comfort and strength to get through the difficult times.


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.


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