Draw on Your Relationships

This book is designed for professionals to help children, teenagers and adults alike to explore, communicate and learn more about themselves in light of their relationships and so to improve their quality of life by improving their relationship life. Many children, teenagers and adults never sit down to reflect on their relationships. As a result, they can endlessly repeat destructive relationship patterns, pick people who are bad for them, stay in deadening relationships, or destroy the lovely relationships they do have.

The wealth of photocopiable exercises in the book are specifically designed to ease the whole process of talking about relationships.. With the help of the pictures as vital openers or triggers, people are often able to describe their perceptions and emotions far more exactly than with words alone.

The book then shows how to develop a theme when the drawings open up a rich channel of communication. Whilst many of the exercises are appropriate for one person to do on their own, others are designed for two or more people to do together e.g. for couples, a parent and child, or with a family
