A-Z Emotions

Purpose: To help patients become more aware of various emotions and how such emotions can be expressed.

   A-Z letter magnets or cards

Pass around the letters and have each patient take a few.  Starting with the letter A, the patient who holds that letter has to come up with an emotion word that starts with that letter.  For example, A could stand for anxious, angry, apprehensive, etc.  Ask others in the group if they have more ideas.  Continue through all the letters of the alphabet, coming up with as many emotion words as possible.

Process with the group about how there are lots of different emotions, and each emotion is valid.  Talk about times when the patients have felt different emotions and how each emotion can be expressed.
