Aware video games for a younger lady with trauma


A easy approach to flip a childhood sport right into a aware observe…

This concept was impressed by one in all our certified Linked Youngsters Tutors.  She was working with a 9 yr previous lady, Okay, who had skilled a lot trauma and abuse.

“I began a sport of I Spy.  We began with I spy with my little eye, then moved onto I spy with my little ears and eventually I spy with my little nostril.  She was actually good!  Heard a chicken and appropriately recognized it as a crow, and smelled some pine timber.  

This can be a easy but very efficient method for kids to practise aware abilities with out realising that’s what they’re doing.  However for this younger lady it was the right introduction.

The thought prompted some extra aware actions that gave this younger individual the prospect to really feel good and see the second.

“She climbed on some play constructions and balanced on some wooden items.  I requested her to cease mid climb and shut her eyes.  Then I requested her to inform me how she was feeling…  “Pleased”. 

Somewhat later I requested her once more…  “Pleased”.  So then I requested her to shut her eyes once more and to inform me the place she felt it in her physique.  “I don’t know”  So I requested, do you’re feeling it in your toes?  Do you’re feeling it in your leg?   “In my coronary heart!!” 

She wished to choose pine cones.  She made it a race.  She gained, getting greater than me.  I instructed we make an image with our pinecones.   Then I requested her to shut her eyes and really feel a pine cone.  Fake I’ve by no means seen a pine cone earlier than.  Describe it to me.  She closed her eyes after which advised me it was squishy and crunchy.  I requested her to maintain her eyes closed and odor the pine cone and inform me what it smelled like.  “Nothing”.  I mentioned wait a minute and I took a giant sniff.  It smells one thing, I simply can’t inform what it’s.  She smelled once more.  “I do know, it smells just like the wooden from a tree.  Just like the bark.”
