An occupational therapist working in an Italian care home sent us the following feedback:
“Thank you for the Gefühlsmonster® cards! They gave me the opportunity to deal with and explore an area I until now had no experience in. In fact, since I did not study psychology, I thought that for dealing with emotions of others one has to know very much about this topic.
When I first showed the cards to the elders, I found it very difficult to answer their questions about the possible meaning of the different cards. Then I decided to have a spontaneous brainstorming, where for me came out that what is visualized in these cards is nothing else than “our soul”. Something that is inside us, being happy, sad, in love or hate – corresponding to our personal experiences!
In the years I have been working here I prepared many different topics leaving out maybe one of the most important. But having the opportunity to get to know and work with the Gefühlsmonster® cards has simplified this topic for me, so that I now work more easily with the elders on their emotions. I am looking forward to more experiences!”
