Discussion cards to help young people develop strategies to cope with everyday, real-life, challenging situations.
There are 30 cards in the set, so simply select a suitable card for a specific session and then participants can suggest possible courses of action, and in doing so, will be able to develop important life skills and strategies.
The cards can be used for one-to-one sessions, giving the participant the opportunity to talk about issues that are important to them and which may be causing problems. Alternatively the cards can be used as group activities in which participants will be able to share their responses and not only learn from others’ suggestions but also actively engage in discussion.
The 30 What Would You Do If…? Choices Cards include:
- You are out with your friends when one of them produces some tablets to ‘try’. They laugh at you and call you names when you hesitate?
- You’ve been chatting in an Internet Chatroom with someone you get on with really well and now they want to meet?
- You are at your friend’s house and it gets late. Your friend’s Dad offers to take you home but he has clearly had a lot to drink and you don’t think he should be driving?
