"I was a formal teacher once and turned to Social worker
working with the most vulnerable, previously homeless, mentally ill
and chemically dependent humans in a residential setting.
I find this book and the blob illustrations to be incredibly helpful in communicating with my clients/tenants.
Blob feelings book I came across recently and after
reviewing the pages I thought it will be an incredible book for
people from all walks of life and profession.
I bought this to give this as a Christmas gift to my aunt and uncle who were both teachers.
I personally have used blob illustrations successfully
with hard to reach clients and tenants who are homeless to express
their thoughts, emotions and feeling successfully.
I have also successfully using this tool in group setting while working with teens, young adults and all age group respective of gender, religion, caste, nationality, etc.
Hope you will find this book helpful too.
The authors have done a great job in explaining how to use this blob tools in our line of work or our community groups. We can also use this for self-reflection." - Vinod Richard-Webber, Social worker
