Group games using compassion and care to deal with situations of conflict and anger
By using games to explore angry feelings, adults working with young people can help them begin to understand what they are feeling and work out ways to use those feelings to achieve better outcomes. The majority of these games are to be played first in an angry way and then in a more controlled, compassionate and caring way for comparison and contrast in the subsequent discussion.
