This innovative resource is a must have for all youth offending teams and professionals working with young people. The game provides an excellent opportunity for the young person to focus quickly on where they are at the present time, understand their situation and the choices they can make to change it (either negative or positive).
The young person and his worker can immediately identify areas of progress or regression which promotes discussion on how to move forward, what difficulties are being experienced or how far they have moved on.
The game begins with the young person understanding their situation by identifying where they are on the board from which a progress plan can be made. The game can then be used at future sessions to assess progress and prompt/encourage/reassess goals. The use of Risk and Safety cards clearly identifies for the young person positive and negative activities and their likely outcomes
