THE BOARD CAREER GUIDANCE TRANSFORMATIONAL GAME “THE PLANET NEEDS YOU!”
Kovaleva Marina Anatolyevna — Master of Psychology, Vice President of the Psychologists Game Practitioners International Guild, author of the psychological transformational games «The Planet Needs You!», «TreasuryGuardian», business coach. Tolyatti, Russia.
The game is designed as a comprehensive tool that allows to systematically solve the problem of schoolchildren, students and redefining adult’sprofessional self-determination in a playful way.
The game helps to work out both traditionally career guidance requests and the psychological aspects of choosing a profession (working with fears and doubts, searching for internal and external resources, creating a positive emotional attitude to choose a profession).
The problem of career guidance is an acute for a huge number of people. Currently, it worries not only schoolchildren, who will soon have to make one of the most significant choices in their lives, but also many students who suspect its accuracy; as well as adults who are trying to change their lives for the better.
As practice shows, the career choice issues are so complex because they are connected with all spheres of our life. This makes our requests and expectations conflict and affect the success of the person on a whole.
The game allows participants to gradually, under the guidance of a coach, in a small group (3-6 people) go all the way from awareness of one’s own desires, aspirations, abilities, professional personality type, to understanding the essence of professional activity and the place in the world of professions in general and narrow it down to specifics in a particular case.
The game format helps to easily involve players in the work and make the difficult path of learning fascinating. The planet really needs the game participants since all of them, without exception, have advanced abilities and can become highly qualified specialists in the chosen professional field.
To go all the «hero» way, participants will have to visit each of the 12 spaceship compartments. During the flight on a spaceship everyone has to: deal with their desires, needs, values, abilities; find and join the professional community of people with the same interests, identify fears and doubts that impede being successful; find resources, make a choice of a future profession, build steps to success in mastering a new profession or adapting to an existing one.
THE BOARD PSYCHOLOGICAL TRANSFORMATIONAL GAME «THE TRASURY GUARDIAN»
The game «Treasury Keeper» allows to work out requests for correction and restoration of deprived or traumatized psychological boundaries of the personality and behavior in conflicts. The work can take place both in an individual and small group (3-6) people format.
The event will be interesting for: specialists with a psychological profile (psychologist, teacher-psychologist, psychotherapist, family psychologist, etc.) who work with relevant requests.
The game helps to participants:
- To identify conflicting internal attitudes regarding their own psychological boundaries,
- To analyze typical border protection strategies,
- To practice in defending themselves, their values and psychological space constructively, confidently and benevolently.
The game is based on the psychological definition of the functions of the boundaries of a person (Levi T.S.) and the concept of sovereignty S.K. Nartova-Bochaver, which identifies six dimensions of the person’s psychological space (their own physical body, territory, personal things (artifacts), time mode (lifestyle), social connections, tastes).
In the game, the sovereign space of a person is metaphorically represented as a treasury, and personal values as wealth stored in a treasury and in need of protection. Guardians, represented by the participants of the game, protect treasures.
Natural disasters led to massive destruction of treasuries. Keepers all the time have to fear for their values, that are not safe right now. There are too many robbers who want to take advantage of the situation and carry away someone else's treasuries. It’s no longer possible to live like this so now Guardians have to rebuild their treasuries by restoring all four walls to protect their treasures.
The walls of the treasury are a symbol of protection in the form of new knowledge about one's own values, protective rules and specific stop phrases that helpto convey the rules to the borders’ “violators”.
Players get the roles of their own treasuries Guardians and territories. They choose the image of the Guardian which they like (there are chips of different types of Guardians) and the values that they will protect. They will build their own treasury and interact with each other.
The defense force of Treasury is rated by other Guardians. They can (optionally) send a gift for a strong rule or leave the mark “Trail of the violator” if the Guardian themselves began to violate someone’s borders.
The game ends with the opening of the Valley of Treasures in a new form and introduction of the Guardians in a new image.

We cannot truly identify ourselves without considering our parents and predecessors. We need to learn how to use inherited resources and to find our birthright place in the family. Also it is important to keep the individuality after becoming a part of something great. Playing the “Heritage” game we determine our place, receive family’s resources and learn to choose strategies which would help us to be happy in our lives.
Imagine: there are myriad of people standing behind you, they are willing to support you, give you strength, wellness and resources. There are at least 126 people in 7 generations, whose blood runs through your veins. Descendants always get only the best by heritage, the best of what the family could experience and pass it to you. Our heritage consists of not only material wealth but also survival strategies, traditions, beliefs, fears and etc. Our predecessors pass their whole life experience as the innermost gift since the family has two main purposes: developing and preserving.
Yet the same things which helped our ancestors to survive may restrict us.
Without evident reasons we can have unusual feelings, do something what we don't want and don't need to do. It happens and we don't understand why. The game can answer this question. Playing the game we see which inherited strategies help us and which ones restrict.
When you inherit something you always have a choice: to accept it gratefully or to refuse. The choice you make will have an impact on your descendant's lives.
The game gives a feeling of acceptance and support by our family.
It will be interesting to everyone who is ready to get to know their predecessors and to take the birthright place.
The aim of the game is to come into the world, take the birthright place in the family we belong to and to be given the resources by the predecessors.
Psychology game-workshop «Paths of love»
Relationship is not a simple thing. We can’t live without it, can we? The problem is after getting negative or traumatic experience we have difficulties in building up almost all kinds of relationship: family, partnership, friendship and love relationship. In this game we determine what prevents us from having healthy relationships and what rules we can create to maintain happiness in our relationships.
Building different kinds of relationships we often face with difficulties. Illusions, painful baggage of the past, unmet needswhich we expect to be met by someone else… All these things may lead us to the trap. Also there are cases, when we cannot be ourselves and it happens when we have some secondary benefits which push us into relationships or we simply play roles in the beginning.
As a result we have tough, traumatic relationships, and then it leads to the point when we don’t want to form and have any of kind of connection at all.
Meanwhile only relationships allow you to tell the real person you are. It looks like a partner dance. That’s why it’s so crucial to learn to listen to a partner, understand and feel each other.
There are different levels in the game. Every player will have his own path of his healthy relationship. One can reach the direct way only after maintaining inner balance and being true to oneself. Only then we are able to see the personality of our partner. When it happens we create our own rules of partnership, which work for this very relationship and increase strength and energy instead of taking them away.
Aim of the game: maintain balance in resources after undergoing challenges; create one’s own rules of partnership and maintain unconditional love.
