מי אני? מי אני באמת?
Who am I? Who am I, really?
This pack consists of cards with pictures of things young adults experience daily. The images were selected to include every sphere of adolescent life and describe emotions, characteristics, and situations they encounter every day
These cards enable the participant to recognize what he or she presents to the world versus what really happens in one's life. It is rare that one permits others to see their inner self or what he/she is really going through. During our lives, we often put on and take off many masks.
These cards enable the participant to expose the true self behind the mask.
These cards are designed to help parents, therapists and education professionals create a meaningful dialogue with these developing young adults, and to support an internal dialogue between one's real self and one's self as perceived by others. The images in this pack can help to surface difficulties, dilemmas, conflicts, and inner strengths.

This pack of cards "who am I ?" is a realization of a dream by Dana and Anat after many years of professional and practical experience (both as life coaches and mothers).
