Abuse/Trauma, individual

River of Life

Children who are verbally and emotionally abused, victims of bullying, or who develop a poor self-concept through divorce or other life events, often develop internal self-defeating messages that lower their self-esteem. The “River of Life” activity is an assessment and working tool used to identify key points in a person’s life where these self-defeating messages were created. It also identifies key factors that contributed to the formation of these beliefs. This activity allows the client to challenge the negative beliefs developed from life’s difficulties. Clients will also recognize personal strengths and healthy coping patterns, as well as coping mechanisms that were not useful. This activity also provides the client with identifying support systems throughout their life span.
