Buanna Clainne (Family Strengths) is a creative tool to aid therapeutic work with families.
A pack of cards designed to assist therapists, family support workers, social workers and educators when working with families or children. This tool offers a creative way of opening conversation and gaining insight into how the different family members perceive the family system.
Designed, created and printed in Ireland, these colourful cards identify 40 different strengths within a family. Each strength statement is matched by an illustration of an animal that shares this quality. The cards are packaged in a beautiful cloth pouch made in the West of Ireland.
The cards are accompanied by instructions for various uses, written by Therese Hegerty, with a focus on narrative practice.
