Video 20: Symbols

‘Symbols’ is a powerful activity, which, while embracing the ideas offered in the previous video ‘Inside-outside’ of asking a young person to identify their internal and external resources to manage hardship; presents a way of exploring, with a young person, the impact and place of ‘struggle’ in their life. The activity makes use of the immediate environment you find yourself in with a young person, and asks them to choose an object from around them to symbolise that struggle; and explores, at some depth, their feelings about their struggle and its place in their life.
