It’s no surprise that I LOVE using Jenga questions in therapy. Whether it’s questions about music, a way to prompt instrument playing, or to build rapport, Jenga is an amazing tool.
I hate to admit it, but I’ve literally spent hours writing questions on wooden Jenga blocks. Most frequently, I’ve done this for other therapists and to support the company I work for, but I’ve learned a few things! I’ve found lots of Jenga therapy questions online, but many of the questions are boring after they are answered the first time. They are great for a first or second session to build rapport, but after that they are almost useless. (How many times can you answer “Whats your favorite pizza topping?”)
Thus was born, the indefinite list of Jenga questions! These questions can be asked numerous times, week over week, and they don’t get old. Too old anyway. Here are a few examples:
- Describe a time that you felt really excited lately.
- What was a challenge you faced this week?
- Who made you feel good this week?
- Rate your day so far on a scale of 1-10.
- Finish the sentence “I hope…..”
