Product Code: FL-WL


Description: Winning at Loss is a therapeutic board game designed to help guide children through their grief. The game contains mostly open-ended questions that encourage children to open up and share their feelings and beliefs. In the game players navigate up and down five mountains that represent the stages of grief. Alternately, if your program does not utilise stages, the card decks and mountains become simply categories of questions. The stages or categories are: - Dealing with the shock - Admitting the reality of the loss - Feeling the pain of loss - Adjusting to life after loss - Rebuilding for the future In addition to the groups of questions mentioned above, there is a fifth deck with true-false questions that give important information on the grieving process and "Play" cards that have the players do silly things to break up the seriousness of the subject matter. There are separate decks of "easier" cards for younger children ages 5-8 (grades K-3). There are also two sets of rules: one focuses on the stages and one refers to the decks of cards as categories of questions, but not as stages of grief. A facilitator's booklet with lesson plans and questions for a post-game discussion are included. The game works in a small group setting - or with a larger group using multiple copies of the game. Age: 5-14
