Talking, Feelings, Doing

In my office I have a therepeutic game for children called, "The Talking,Feeling, and Doing Game". What a great way to describe the relationship between soul mates. Talking and feeling heard and validated. Feeling and experiencing the security of being supported and understood. Doing and finding all kinds of activities that are fun because the two of you are engaged with each other. Score yourself on these three elements of satisfying relationship. Resist judging your partner. Remember, you can only change yourself.

  1. As a former school psychologist, one of my best tools had been The Talking,
    Feeling, and Doing Game. Children easily related to it, and were able to more easily express feelings. The structure of the game promoted a supportive relationship between them and myself, something they often did not have in their lives. I remember the game fondly.
