Let’s Play BounceBack: 02/06/18 – Immigrants

It’s not easy for new arrivals. Immigrants face tremendous challenges upon entry and while adapting to American culture/systems. We are a nation built by immigrants. Many in our society seem to have forgotten this. Giving up one’s home and trying to make a new home in a country far away and unfamiliar is a difficult process. Language barriers alone present tremendous challenges.

Immigrants was created to help those trying to settle themselves in America. It was also created to help build an understanding and empathy in those who are unfamiliar with the issues.

Use it alone or with friends to start speaking about the challenges presented and those you may face daily. Practice applying the Skills & Attitudes of resilience. Use it in a large group to educate students/workshop participants. Bring Immigrants and another group such as law enforcement officers together to learn from one another. Have law enforcement respond to the Immigrant challenges and immigrants respond to the First Responder/Public Safety challenges.

Purchase BounceBack

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.
