Ok my training is over and its my first official day tomorrow. I will be sitting in on groups for adults 18+, men and women. I need group activity ideas. just to throw out.  ideas to work on self esteem, trust afirmations, triggers, stuff like that.  I was going to do an art activety.  I was going to draw a unisex person for them to decorate as themselves. and then for them to fill in and draw in where they feel their anxiety, where they feel their pain when it hurts when they feel depressed or sad or anxious. like does your stomach hurt or your heart hurt, your chest, your head? kwim? any other ideas? i really need to impress my boss! this can be a huge opportunity withme not only to get off disability but for my family and  i to maybe relocate if called for and for job advancement.

 I say do not do those things without training and degrees - what is your job title and expectations? What about simply providing activities for busy work such as simple coloring?
