A TOOL FOR VISUAL STORY TELLING, AND SELF ORIENTATION
A story told primarily through the use of visual media is first of all the best tool to make children observe themselves better. The first step of any progress in personal and social development is opening the eyes and observe who you really are from different angels and with different lights and frames. For many broken children, a photo taken and seen alone help them understand themselves better and literally have a "picture" of who they are in their hand, a good place to start.
Without any doubt the skill alone is a great treasure, but the process also include both social and personal develpment as an integrated part of the training.
