Developed in the clinical setting for over 10 years, these cards have been gracefully illustrated to engage children and adults.
The Tell Me A Story cards invite young people to recall and retell their extreme moments (Luckiest! Highest! Furthest! Fastest! Bravest!), while uncovering a sense of pride in their past achievements and their coping skills.
The story topics have been carefully chosen to appeal to young storytellers, with the capacity to engage listeners of all ages. The TMAS cards are a useful tool for parents and professionals working with young people to facilitate communication, highlight strengths, give praise and boost self-esteem.
The cards may also be used as an exercise in listening and turn-taking. When working with adolescents or adults, practitioners may like to use the cards to build trust and develop empathy between peers
