The Gefühlsmonsters are also appreciated as part of grief counselling, in talks with members of the deceased and in grief support groups for children and adolescents.
For that purpose, there are already first films and book publications where the use of Gefühlsmonsters is shown.
Ms Mechthild Schröter-Rupieper is a pioneer in working with grief support groups for children and adolescents and has been using the Gefühlsmonsters for years. Here is feedback from her:
The story of Sara
“Sara’s mum has been in a coma for the last six months after a heart attack. In grief counselling, she is asked if she can find a card which describes the current feelings for each member of her family.
Sara chooses the cards. She takes them in her hand, weighs up, puts one back and takes another one.”
