Summary Recent statistics show an increase in suicidal ideations among American youth, indicating a need to address ways to build adolescent identities and self-esteem. Current research shows that adolescents respond positively to games as instructional tools, often achieving more effective results in learning when compared to traditional lecture. The purpose of this project is to create a motivational board game that teaches adolescents the skills necessary to develop positive identities and self-esteem. Details covered within this project include the rationale for the game, its supportive literature review, the game's design and development process, professional evaluations of the product, and a conclusion discussion on the game and its future uses.
