Shadows and Deeper Shadows is an invaluable tool for counsellors, psychologists and therapists, providing an emotionally charged set of 48 watercolour cards. 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.
The cards invite viewers to reflect on their experiences-to identify and explore the meaning of shadows in their lives. The images in the cards offer sufficient ambiguity for people to create the endings to their stories that are true for them. Contained in the images are subtle suggestions for hope, but they are there only if the viewer chooses to see them as appropriate.
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. The person using the cards should always be able to decide what they want to discuss and when is the appropriate moment.
Examples of way the cards can be used are presented below:
