Questions for opening up dynamic conversations with young people
Anyone who spends time with young people can use Deep Speak to build rich conversations about some of life's big questions... and some of the little quirky ones as well!
This is an engaging and thought-provoking resource for educators, mental health workers, chaplains, youth workers and anyone employed in juvenile justice. Deep Speak is a set of 120 question cards, each one pertinent to the issues that absorb young people as they deal with relationships, identity, emotions, beliefs and values. To get the ball rolling there are also conversation 'openers', and the card set comes with a 32-page booklet of suggestions to help users explore the transformational power of simple questions.
The cards are colour-coded into six broad themes - openers, identity, beliefs, emotions, values and relationships - so that facilitators can easily make selections of cards, if they wish.
