Ups and Downs with Feelings is a game designed to help children talk about and process uncomfortable feelings. Following a spiral path the players have opportunities to talk about feeling faces they encounter along the way. If they land on a happy face, they can talk about their positive feelings and then follow the arrow up a level. If they land on a negative feeling face, since uncomfortable feelings can make anyone feel down, they talk about their yucky feeling and then follow the arrow down a level. The player then chooses from 4 different therapeutic options which can transform their negative feelings and help them feel better. Shrinking their negative feeling allows them to move back up to where they started and continue on in the game thus learning positive coping strategies which they can use in their daily lives.
