Feelings Uno

Here’s an easy and useful intervention idea submitted by reader Emily Clifton, LISW. Ms. Clifton earned a gift certificate to childtherapytoys.com for her submission. Learn how you can do the same!

Purpose: To help identify triggers and start conversations in family/individual session.

Target Population: Can be used in individual, family, or group sessions that include children/adolescents.

Materials Needed: One deck of Uno cards.

Rules: Give each color in the Uno deck a feeling (example: yellow-happy, blue-sad, red-angry, green-jealous). Then whenever someone changes the color, they have to state a time when they felt the emotion that corresponds with the new color.
