52 Reasons

Purpose: To increase patients' self-esteem and help them identify their talents

52 Reasons book
   One full deck of cards for each participant
   Various art supplies (magazines, newspapers, construction paper, markers, glue etc.)
   Hole punch

Hole punch the corner of each card in the deck.  Have each patient create a list of 52 reasons they love themselves/positive qualities/talents.  Write one reason on each card in the deck.  Use the art supplies to decorate the cards.  To finish, use the ribbon to tie the cards together.

   Have patients share some of their favorite cards.  Talk about how important it is to recognzie our own self-value and self-worth.  Share how it feels to know there are at least 52 reasons why you are special.
