Three sets of skills are introduced that help Randy stay calm, make good decisions, and prepare for difficult situations.

Thinking Skills: Prepare, Make a decision, Postpone your reaction, Think ahead about results.

Individuals with anger and aggression problems are usually anxious and defensive whenever the subject is brought up. In the game, however, participants are giving advice to Randy, a fictitious person. This "distance" puts them in a position where they can deal with and learn about these important issues without the usual defensiveness and denial. In the post-game discussion, the teacher relates the players' actions in the game to real life situations. The game is designed with lots of suspense and negotiating to make it fun and appealing for older students. Complete lesson plans are included for group leaders and teachers.
Appropriate for individuals in Grades 8 thru adult.
