- Start a conversation about the themes.
- Investigate which knowledge is present and offer information.
- Make experiences and feelings discussable.
- Discover problematic issues and discuss dilemmas.
- Take action if needed.
Developed in cooperation with professionals and experts
Friends & Lovers has been developed by Bureau Edubooks & Training. Sixty professionals in healthcare provided the topics. They were in need of image material to make their topics discussable. Content experts in the field of relationships and sexuality offered their feedback.
The method has been extensively tested in practice in the healthcare sector and practical education, and by interest groups.
Choose a way to select the game cards from the Work guide. The pictures evoke associations with the participants, which leads to a conversation. The questions help the supervisor to deepen the conversation. The Additional Questions Guide guides the methodical approach. With the Action card, possible actions are documented.
