A Tool to Reflect On and Deal With One's Own Emotions


Sonia Tao

In this project it was established that providing words for emotions, as well as for different coping strategies, helps people in their active personal reflection process. Those words – printed on physical cards – help to create a link to past experiences and shape a clearer understanding of one’s state of being. The additional stand for the cards serves as a base for a recurring and conscious self reflection. The insights were gathered by interviewing and working closely together with multiple cancer patients.
