Spirit of the Tribe is a social skills game to help children understand the language of friendship, social cues and norms, and how to take action to find a group of friends where they belong. This game will help children recognize positive values, focus on shared hobbies and activities, and to build strong relational skills to solidify relationships. 


Topics include “Removing the Mask,” which discusses difficulties in social situations, anxiety, and avoidance.  “Tribal Talk” teaches communication skills, “Fun Times” helps focus on the positive aspects of friendship and how to set goals for getting together with friends, and “ Friendship Goals” discusses values and expectations in friendship.


The telehealth version includes a PowerPoint document and a link to the Google Slides version of the game.  You can share your screen in your favorite telehealth software and play with your client.  On Zoom, if your client is on a desktop you can share your mouse to allow them to interact with the game.  However, if you are on a phone, the pawns will not move.  The links will work.  Be sure you do not try to play in "presentation mode". This mode will not allow the pawns to move.


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.


Here is a link to a tutorial for how to play games via Google Slides:


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