Discussion cards and strategies to help teenagers cope with their worries
In addition to the popular Little Tin of Big Worries also available is the Little Tin of Teenage Worries aimed specifically at teenagers and the issues they face. The cards address 70 common teenage worries grouped into seven main areas:
· Becoming a victim of cyber-bullying · How to get contraception without anyone knowing · Having spots or acne · Getting enough Facebook friends · Finding a job · Parents splitting up · Leaving home · Constant tiredness · Financial worries · Wearing the wrong clothes · Getting into trouble at school · Drinking alcohol · Having sex · Getting an STI and not knowing what to do · An unplanned pregnancy · Being laughed at · A parent losing their job · Staying away from home · Getting good enough grades · Not finding a boyfriend or girlfriend · Being too tall or short · Struggling with schoolwork · Violence in the street · Being attacked · Falling out with a friend · Being a hospital patient · Getting into an argument · Choosing the right college or uni · Violent films · Having the wrong phone · Getting into debt · Being called names · Stranger danger · Peer pressure to do things I don’t want to · Going to parties · Getting in trouble with the police · Having to speak in front of a large group · Getting into a fight · Taking drugs.
There are also seven strategy cards with ideas on how to handle the concerns and to help players decide on an appropriate way to tackle each individual worry. The strategies are:
To use the Little Tin of Teenage Worries lay the seven Solution Cards out on the table and discuss the meaning of each. Then place the Worry Cards in a pile face down and the players take it in turns to pick up the top card, discuss the worry, and decide on which Solution Card is the most relevant.
These cards are ideal for a range of establishments in addition to schools and colleges as although they cover everyday issues that all teenagers face, carefully selected cards can also be used to tackle a variety of mental health problems. The cards can be used with an individual student who is suffering from anxiety or for groups asking each student to find the best solution to the worry. What also works well is to pair up the students with one being the ‘worrier’ and the other being the ‘adviser’. You could also have a third person being an ‘observer’ who listens and makes notes and reports back to the rest of the class. There are teachers’ notes to explain these different uses of the cards.
