MAT work is best when in a group. These mats can be purchased separately or in a set of three.
The client when they first arrive for group work, counselling, or even a youth program they first step on one of the feelings listed on the mat. They they have to identify why they are feeling that feeling at that moment.
This is a great way to get people to open up about their current situation before any class, course, or meeting begins.
Everyone has to have a go on the MAT’s before the group work can begin, but this gives the leaders of the group a true insight into where their group is at that moment in time.
