Any Game Counseling Prompts for 26 Different Topics
These low-prep counseling prompts will work with almost any game you already have – I use them almost daily at my school! Each set of prompts is coded by number and color. Roll a 5? Respond to prompt #5! Drew a yellow card? Respond to the yellow prompt! Questions/prompts are worded so that they can be answered multiple times during a game without it being repetitive. These are excellent for individual counseling and small group counseling. Resource also includes colorful game board that can be used with any die and player pieces, as well as suggested games.

Versions are included for faculty, parents, and students (lower elementary version and upper elementary options).
