Titelseite und Artikel Praxis Schulpsychologie

Article in “Praxis Schulpsychologie” No.34:

The journal “Praxis Schulpsychologie” is the flagship of the School Psychology Section of the Professional Association of German Psychologists BDP, and is published by Deutscher Psychologen Verlag dpv. This issue is dedicated to the topic of mentalization, so a report on the BondingBoard fitted perfectly into the‘From research and practice’ section .

I am delighted with this publication, which uses some examples of questions to show how easy it is to use the bonding board to trigger thinking and talking about social relationships, making it easier for people of all ages to empathize with a counterpart and at the same time become clear about their own emotional involvement. This is often the first step towards understanding and change.

The whole article (in German):
