The Self-Control Game by Berthold Berg, Ph.D., teaches children ages 8 and up how to exercise self-control in academic and social surroundings. The game addresses 24 specific traits and behaviors classified as impulsive, inattentive, or hyperactive. As they move around the game board and respond to questions on game cards, players learn how to change maladaptive behavior. A Children's Behavior Control Inventory (included) helps you select game cards that focus on a given child's particular needs. This game is an ideal way to apply cognitive-behavioral techniques to impulsive or hyperactive behavior. If you treat children who daydream, fidget, or act without thinking, try The Self-Control Game.

Suitable for children 8 years and older, two to six players.

The Self-Control Workbook
by Berthold Berg, Ph.D.

A companion to The Self-Control Game, this workbook gives children practice in using positive self-statements and problem-solving techniques to control their behavior. Exercises teach students how to think before they act, how to prepare themselves for interruptions, how to credit themselves for success and effort, and how to empathize with peers who find their hyperactive behavior irritating. The written "homework" assignments in this workbook can be used to extend the benefits of therapy. Ages 8 and up.
