Draw on Your Emotions (2nd Edition) - Book
This is the newly revised 2018 version of the popular resource by Margot Sunderland.
This is superb person-centred tool, for people of all ages who prefer to express themselves visually rather than with words. It enables exploration via a structured drawing process of a person's life experience (the best and the worst), memories, relationships and who the participant is as a person. It enables the user to express, communicate and deal more effectively with emotions and feelings through drawing.
Five key themes have simple picture-based activities with clear instructions and goals, instructions and suggestions for ongoing development. Each has been carefully designed to ease talking about feelings and exploring life choices, by trying out alternatives safely on paper. The activities help to create clarity and build new perspectives for ongoing therapeutic interventions.
The picture exercises can be adapted for any age or ability from middle childhood upwards.
The information obtained from using this tool is extremely useful to provide underpinning evidence to support healthcare professionals to establish clear goals ands issues for ongoing care planning and establishing person-centred therapeutic clinical goals.
