Massachusetts offices get motivated using creative boards
October 7, 2013 Leave a comment
The Massachusetts offices have been using creative bulletin boards to motivate one another and teach them useful interventions. The Worcester office has created an “intervention board,” which features a different recommended intervention each month. The pictured Skittles intervention was suggested by Jessica Turkington. Staff can use it to help children identify different feelings based on the color of the Skittles they draw.
The Springfield office has created a “feelings board,” with each specialist’s picture printed on the animal of their choice. At the beginning of group meetings, they place their animal on the corresponding feeling face. This is a great icebreaker to start off group meetings and opens the door for specialists to express their feelings with their team.
The Springfield office is also using a window in the office’s conference room to stay motivated. Each specialist has a kite displaying the names of their successful discharges. This is a way to get success noticed by the office without having to wait for quarterly meetings.
