The “Speaking Cards” kit contains 36 cards that display children experiencing some of the diverse situations and feelings a child may encounter in their day-to-day lives. The cards are drawn in basic clean lines and are deliberately adapted to resonate with the way in which children see the world. By playing with the cards and talking about them, you can encourage the child to express the feelings and thoughts that they are carrying in their heart, whether as part of their everyday life or in times of transition, turning points or crises. Using the cards to talk about feelings will help the child to better handle their life events and cope with difficult emotions.
There are many ways to use the cards, especially if you are a therapist, then you can be as creative as you feel.

As the images show, every card shows a different pose that may be relevant to different situations in the child’s world.
Designed by professional art therapists and psychotherapists, this card game has been carefully designed so as to embrace the feelings expression process and make children feel comfortable while talking about their inner world. This is why the emotions are not listed on the back of the cards – the child can choose to talk about what really pops up to his mind. Talking through cards is an extremely effective way in order to find out what kids really think, to which situations they are related to, or in what ways they can express their feelings.
