In therapeutic settings, the Gefühlsmonsters are used similarly as in coaching. It is often reported that a conversation through the Gefühlsmonster® cards gets more easily under way – at the same time it is in the hands of the therapist to use the cards only when a confrontation with one’s own feelings is acceptable.
Gefühlsmonsters in Child Therapy
“I work as a therapist with a ten year old child. It was my first time working with a child as a therapist. He came to me being angry with his teacher, with his peers, with his mom and without too many words to express it. I showed him the cards and asked him to choose the one that represents the best how he was feeling at the moment.”
