Let’s Play BounceBack: 01/11/18 – Disability

Disability can be difficult whether it is congenital or acquired as a result of illness and/or injury.  Some of that difficulty is physical/medical and requires a managed network of providers. That is a set of challenges in and of itself. Other difficulties arise from a poor understanding of the nature of a given disability and what may or may not be necessary to accommodate.

This deck is one of the original Bounceback decks written for and with the help of Alpha One and other disabled individuals supporting the project. It is our hope that the Disability deck will increase understanding between those who know disability and those who have little knowledge. As with our other decks, it is intended to start conversations on the individual/small group level and in support groups with the goal of building resilience Skills & Attitudes to apply to future challenges.

There are many challenges involved in adapting to/living with a disability. Are you facing these challenges? Would you like more insight into those who do?

For a better understanding of BounceBack, view our video on the right-hand side of this page.

BounceBack will be available for purchase via our website soon. We’d like to introduce you to BounceBack by playing a bi-weekly (Tuesdays and Thursdays) game on our homepage using our free Downloadable Demonstration Deck.

Your Challenge Card from our Downloadable Demonstration Deck is featured above. Once you’ve dealt with the challenge, magnify your screen and take a close look at the bottom of the card. There you will see the Skills & Attitudes we feel might be most helpful in managing the scenario. You can also use other skills and attitudes that you find helpful as long as you can explain how you would apply them.  We challenge you to find new ways of responding to adversity.

Which of these Skills & Attitudes will you choose to apply?

Follow along alone, with a friend or a group. Talk to others and find out how they would respond. We can learn much from one another. But if we wish to learn from our experiences, we must first get through them.

Please feel free to contact us with your feedback.
