Was £21.50!

Bring social skills to life by trying out activities through role-play before the real-life situations are faced.

The cards present three different scenes:

  • The Supermarket
  • The Doctor's Surgery
  • The Oriental Market.

For each scene, there is a cover card providing an introduction, the list of the props needed, the characters that can be played and warm-up suggestions.

There are eight cards for the social skills covered:

  • Walking
  • Sitting
  • Greeting
  • Speaking
  • Listening
  • Negotiation
  • Disagreement
  • Assertion.

Each card outlines preparation, warm-up, action and development.

Published reviews: 

“Therapists who are new to the practice of drama therapy may find these cards a helpful resource for easing into drama therapy work....the instructions are very clear so that people can apply them within the context of how their practices already work.”
Healing Magazine

“I greatly look forward to ‘borrowing’ these, Dr Jennings’ latest ideas, for my own drama group.”
Hazel Barcegirdle, Senior Occupational Therapist and Dramatherapist, Stockport, Cheshire, Therapy Weekly
