You’ll Need: Magazines
Glue or Tape
Markers or Colored Pencils or Crayons
Brown Paper Bag for each participant
Patients should be instructed to decorate the outside of their bag with things that represent how other people see them and put things inside that represent how they really are on the inside. Patients can tear out of the magazines, so scissors are not needed!
Then, patients should share the outside and inside of their bags with the group.
1. The difference between who we really are and how we present ourselves.
2. Why it can be difficult to share what is inside the bag, what are we afraid of?
3. How can communicating who we are be important in relationships?
4. What happens if we don’t communicate who we are?
