Get to Know You Card Game for Desiree who has a hard time opening up

Posted Jan 13, 2020
Desiree enjoys when her caseworker comes to the home but is very shy and has expressed that she would like to open up and engage more but doesn't know how. When asked, Desiree stated that she likes to play Jenga in school and would like to play that with her worker. The worker found a Get to Know You card game that has questions on it that could be used during visits to help Desiree feel more comfortable talking about things. Desiree has had a history of numerous placements and family loss that she is not yet willing to talk about. The caseworker hopes that this game will help them build a better rapport together.

Desiree is 15 years old and lives in Brick, NJ

Desiree is very quiet and likes to dance and hang out with her friends. When she is not with her friends she is talking to them on the phone. Desiree enjoys arts and crafts like sewing and making pillows. She does very well in school and has risen to the challenge of virtual learning and continues to get A’s and B’s. Desiree is kind and caring when it comes to others and is always willing to help.
