These games will be invaluable for those working with small groups of young people who find it difficult to behave and co-operate with their peers.

They are progressive in terms of skill development and complexity and have a strong focus on early intervention (age range from 4 to 14). The games may be used sequentially over 6 to 8 sessions to practise a range of social and emotional skills; or in a one-off session to cover specific skills.

Socio-emotional development addressed includes:
- social and friendship skills
- anger management
- coping with teasing
- coping in the playground
- paying compliments

The eight games are presented on a CD for users to print their own colour copies. The disc contains the games board and all the necessary cards.
