Therapy Cards are a tool that help and support clients attending therapy to explore their feelings or /and help them reflect on the abilities to process difficult times in their lives. The cards have been developed by Relationships are Forever Foundation together with a team of warranted counsellors.
The Therapy Cards pack is intended to be used as a toolbox to aid the therapeutic process.
The cards can be used at any phase of the therapeutic journey and can help to create a safe space where clients can talk about their feelings and explore and give meaning to the experiences they are going through. They can also be used to unblock the therapeutic process when it reaches an impasse.
The images on the front of the cards can help clients connect with the present moment, while the questions at the back can serve to help clients to reflect, analyse and critically evaluate their feelings or/and behaviours.
The counsellor/therapist needs to use his or her professional competencies to facilitate the introduction of the cards, help clients connect with the cards and use them according to the client’s needs. This process of exploration can help clients become more attuned with their feelings and choose alternative behaviours that have meaning to them.
Relationships are Forever Foundation is non-profit, non-governmental organisation based in Malta. The Foundation was established by a married couple Julian & Joanna Sant Fournier who have being working in the voluntary sector since 2002, they believe strong relationships are the foundation of a strong & stable society.
The primary objective of the Foundation is to help children, couples and families build strong relationships through education, assistance and group activities aimed at helping couples, whether married or unmarried, to develop life and communication skills with the objective of nurturing stable and long lasting relationships.
The Foundation’s vision is to promote and encourage communication between children, couples all over the world, through various means, including but not limited to, collaboration with other non-profit organizations and entities pursuing similar objectives and through sharing and developing new tools and techniques to help build strong relationships.
The foundation has created two tools based on the same technique:
CoupleCards is an innovative voluntary initiative which we believe will make a difference to society. The objective is to help couples develop the necessary skills to communicate, connect and strengthen their relationship.Each card helps the couple express an emotion and includes hints to enable the couple discuss and understand their particular situation. Once a couple understands the concept they will develop way of how to use the cards …. The focus remains strengthen the relationship.What price would you pay to help a couple to build a strong relationship? It is priceless, so our idea is to make it available all couples all over the world.We welcome donations and sponsors to help us along the way …The concept will succeed if each one of us believes in contributing part of our life for the good of society, we need volunteers who believe in the idea and share it with other couples. Once it works for you, please pass it on, the true joy and happiness in a relationship comes from giving, from sharing your experiences with others, so they too can be happy
We also have created another education tool where children and families can learn communication life skills while playing a game. Friendship Cards are an interactive tool which can be used with friends at school and families at home. They help in the development of emotional literacy and conflict resolution skills, which empower the individual to cultivate positive attitudes.
Friendship Cards will provide children with ideas to make good choices that contribute to a happy and meaningful life. Friendship Cards will help children take positive actions to build a character based on strong values and healthy relationships.
Happy Children and Happy Families are the foundations of a strong and stable society.for more informations visit www.friendshipcards.org
