Imaginhero™ Power Words is a worksheet that guides students to identify their strengths and ideals. By thinking of a word or phrase (their ‘power word’) that associates with their ideal, students are encouraged to imagine their ‘super self’.

The power word they have associated with their ideal self can be used to maintain an accurate and positive self-concept. Through reinforcement, it can be used as a trigger to boost the strength and self-confidence of a student when they face a challenging situation.

Social Emotional Learning
The Power Words worksheet helps students develop self-awareness in line with the first of the five social emotional learning (SEL) core competencies. The Power Words worksheet can be used either as part of an established SEL curriculum or as a stand-alone activity.

Recognizing Strengths: The process of finding their ‘power word’ guides a student to list positive attributes and aspirations they have, and to recognize their individual strengths.

Self-confidence: Through identifying their strengths and associating them with a superhero persona, students will elevate their self-concept and increase their self-confidence.

Self-efficacy: Through imagining their transformation into a superhero they reinforce their belief in their ability to succeed, as well as boosting their confidence in their ability to control their own motivation, behavior, and environment.

About Imaginhero
Imaginhero is a framework to help children explore and communicate their emotions using the language and imagery of superheroes. Using techniques from mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy, Imaginhero helps identify dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and thoughts and develop new, healthier alternatives.

Through imagining a situation in terms of superheroes, supervillains, and superpowers, Imaginhero helps children create a structure in which to develop their own productive, non-aggressive responses to situations they find challenging.
