We have lots of new offerings coming in 2023 – here’s a sneak peak at just a few.
Navigating Depression cards
Our long awaited Navigating Depression cards will be available later this year. As the author of Navigating Depression, psychologist Kate Skilbeck, says:
‘There are countless struggles and sources of pain in our lives. It can be tough. However, there are things we can do to help us navigate through challenging times, and not only survive but thrive and grow stronger through adversity.’
Drawing on the metaphor of the journey, these 40 beautifully-illustrated cards include five characters exploring the challenging terrain of depression.
Featuring a word and image on the front and a range of questions, sentence starters and evidence-based exercises on the back, the Navigating Depression cards have been designed to help people work with low mood or emotional distress.
You can use the cards to help people:
- share their stories and experiences
- build social and emotional literacy
- proactively notice and address early warning signs
- create healthy, protective habits
- recognise when to seek support.
Great for teachers, counsellors, social workers, psychologists, parents or anyone supporting people experiencing depression, and perfect for use with adults and young people in one-on-one therapeutic conversations, groups or classrooms.
The set also includes an in-depth booklet with lots of ideas for activities.
Cards for talking about respectful relationships with children
We are also updating a much-loved card set, giving it a contemporary vibe and some new content. Illustrated with a bunch of quirky characters, you can use the cards to think about the elements of healthy relationships and friendships.
Being able to identify the dimensions of healthy relationships is perhaps the first step in knowing how to make good choices in our relationships with others.
These cards create an opportunity to have conversations about the fundamentals of relationships—respect, kindness, inclusion, celebration of differences as well as similarities, listening, connectedness—fundamentals that have the potential to be life-changing.
Use this resource to help build small microcosms of respectful relationships, in the school ground, in neighbourhoods, in sports clubs and in families.
Watch this space – coming in late 2023!
