Shadows and Deeper Shadows
Expanded Second Edition
by Russell Deal and Fiona Gardner; illustrated by Carolyn Marrone
This set of 48 emotionally charged images invites people to reflect on their experiences and explore the "shadows" in their lives. Painful experiences—grief, loneliness, depression, loss, and violence—often need to be discussed before resolution is possible. The iconic images on these large (8 1/4" x 6"), colorful, laminated cards provide the stimulus people need in order to tell their stories, uncover their strengths and weaknesses, and find ways to move forward. This set includes a 48-page booklet full of helpful suggestions and anecdotes, including tips about using Shadows as a creative writing tool. Here's a taste from the booklet:
- Which card says something about a situation you are facing?
- Pick a card that creates a particular feeling or reminds you of something from your childhood.
Teachers, social workers, counselors, and therapists will find creative and transformational ways of using these cards.
