The wheel turns: to understand the thought process and identify its different components.
It gets out of hand: to understand how we are sometimes victims of our perceptions and feelings. Resilience Roadtrip addresses different skills in order to progress towards more positive consequences.
Yes, here we go again: to make this spiral become positive, the game reveals, awakens and strengthens different skills and resources.
And in case of emergency: for emergency situations – where everything goes too fast and we can’t manage to redirect the spiral towards the positive – we reverse the direction of the wheel which becomes CRAP: Consciousness – Reaction (to stop the reaction) – Activate (to activate an activity that will help to manage emotions) – Perception (to question)
