A Deck of Distortions (cognitive that is!)
Imps to be lurking Sometime in 2023
UPDATES WILL APPEAR ON THIS PAGE OVER TIME AS THE PROJECT PROGRESSES
Well, while working on the Deathknight in Heaven project, which involves some antics of an elite demon squad sneaking into heaven and facing cartoon like ponies, bears, and so on…. Will King got inspired to send me a number of fuzzy nightmares…. although not a fit for the DKIH project, these critters screamed to me “C’mon you gotta find us a place!!!”
Thus came about this project… they reminded me of little monsters I used to have patients draw to represent their negative self-talk/cognitive distortions that got in the way of their creative processes. So I thought, hey these little guys could represent a slew of cognitive distortions as well as being made into a deck for creating a card game.
Thus, in addition to just having a really weird card deck of nightmare imps and goblins, there will be aspects to use them for actual play, and reflection exercises on the various cognitive distortions each little beastie represents!
A book explaining the concepts behind the project, the reflection exercises, and games will be included!
As usual, the project will be used to make a quality product and used to raise awareness for mental health, and support mental health organizations.
