What is it about?

Unfortunately, even children are faced with psychosocial strains in their everyday life: excessive demands, pressure to perform, mobbing, etc. For this reason, with the help of a multi-media game, 7 to 12 year olds are to be buttressed on a personal level. The basic idea: By learning to better use your potential and to gauge well how you come across and how effective you are, you will be in a better position for dealing with emotionally challenging situations. With Benno, the game’s main character, the children can practice the skills necessary for this – playfully, alone or in a group, with the family, at school or at a recreation centre.
