Creative Games in Groupwork
by Robin Dynes
Here is the answer to a group leader's prayer. Whether you're a social worker, occupational
therapist, counselor, teacher, scoutmaster or church group leader, you'll find scores of
games-for all ages-in this manual. There are icebreakers, quiet games, physical games,
brain teasers, verbal games, pen and pencil tasks, quizzes, and outdoor activities.
There are games to simulate conversation, build trust, aid memory, improve concentration,
enhance physical skills, encourage social development, promote responsibility, relieve
anxiety, increase self-esteem, and much more. For each game, the book describes materials
needed, preparation, action, and variations.
