A man places his hand on a girl's shoulder. A boy sees a figure through a window. A bedroom door is slightly ajar and throws light on a sleeping figure. A girl looks sideways at herself in the mirror.

Here is a unique resource that exploits ambiguous imagery to stimulate discussion about experiences, values and identity.

Developed for use with adolescents and young people, Talking Pictures features 27 full-colour cards, each of which depicts a social situation that is open to interpretation. For some young people, these cards may represent everyday scenarios they simply breeze through. For others, the scenes may be challenging or confronting.

Each scene invites the viewer to form meaning and consider questions like:

• What is happening in the story?
• What has led to this situation?
• What will happen next?
• What are those in the picture feeling?
• What might they be saying?

Talking Pictures can be used in a variety of different ways with young people. The cards can be used as therapeutic prompts or to develop problem-solving skills. They can be used for role plays and talking about protective behaviours. They can even used (with care) for creative writing and scripting activities with young people.

The 'storying' that may be build around Talking Pictures can be rich and diverse, and fulfill a variety of needs. Teachers, counsellors, youth workers: this is an unsual and thought-provoking resource for your work with young people, their parents and families.
