Shadows and Deeper Shadows
Therapeutic storytelling tools
Telling stories can be a powerfully therapeutic practice. For many people, sharing stories of their lived experiences is an important part of moving forward.
Shadows and Deeper Shadows is an emotionally charged set of 48 watercolour cards, plus instructional booklet, that prompts viewers to explore the meaning of the shadows in their lives and notice how the light gets in.
The cards invite viewers to reflect on their experiences through images and messages of hope that are open for interpretation, allowing people to shape a narrative that is true to them.
Shadows and Deeper Shadows has been carefully designed as a resource that human service workers can use to help others describe and deal with their pain and sorrow on their terms.
This resource acknowledges that pain and suffering (such as grief, depression, loss and violence) often need to be storied before pathways to resolution can be found.
Shadows and Deeper Shadows is an invaluable tool for counsellors, psychologists and therapists and provides emotional support to individuals and clients who could benefit from reflection and conversation
