Do you run out of materials for your students, groups, or clients? Save yourself valuable time, while also providing a meaningful, educational, and memorable game for your client(s). There are so many prompts included in this fun tool that you could easily continue it throughout multiple sessions.

How Does it Work? 

How Does it Work? 

The game can be played simply as is, or modified to be easier or hardier, depending on your audience and goals. Some options to play include: 

  • Print out the game, cards, and all pieces needed to play in person

  • Combine the game with a traditional Bingo set, and use Bingo balls and tokens (entirely compatible with this set!) 

  • Play the game via telehealth, by Zoom, phone, or another platform (just e-mail the playing cards to your clients ahead of time, or pull a card up on screen)

  • Use only the prompts you find most relevant, or add your own bonus questions to the game


I used to run frequent groups in a hospital setting, and I know the amount of content and activities needed never ends. That’s why I created CBT Lingo, so you can teach CBT concepts in an easy, fun, and meaningful way.
