Project Name * FROG Family Change Game
- Brief description of our idea:
The idea started from our desire to help as many families to change and improve their relationships. We challenged to figure out a way for this to happen in a very accessible and very innovative way. Family Therapy examines the family as a system of different parts. Changing any part of the system will trigger changes in all other parts. We came to the decision that such a change could be „embedded“ in the family through specially developed by family counselors and therapists board game to help the family:
-to communicate better.
-to improve their interaction.
-to identify and resolve conflicts.
– to help the entire family unit to function better.
– to unite the family.
-to develop new strategies of behavior.
Our idea is family to go through its metamorphosis at home, thereby overcoming defenses and mechanisms preventing the therapeutic process.
