try to make it an interesting and fun activity ... we used collageing alot .... others snipped out pix and words from any source and would then use a poster board to glur their things on to represent their group and what they seem to do best ... then after time they felt it was easier to give a name ... but it's very common that alters do not have a name before being discovered ... so then what we did was get a book of baby names and set up a nameing day party ... junk food ect ... ah then the diabetic thing but we think special treats for a nameing party are worth the high level .

then at times there are some groups that may shift from one area to another depending on the changes in daily life .... some new things are added because the older one became boreing ...and for simply feeling more secure by hideing a bit because things are a bit diffrent.

we use circles to represent one bigger circles to enclose as a froup . lines to connect who to who ... often this is the first step they draw the map but not put in the names ... YET ,,,, it's depending on each others comfort zones

last some are not simply in one group .... they connect to one or two other groups thus createing the ability to network ... gnite :phone:

I really like the collage idea. We'll have to give that a try sometime. Cool, actually think I've got a good place for it...Thanks! We used to collage just for therapy kind of but never about us.

well haveing been very artistic sense oh increadibly young any really well planned or just splashing around art ends up with some of whom was working on it at the time ... teens thot the littles could use collageing easier than simply trying to draw .. gave them a big person feeling too ... teens would help them find the words they wanted and it encourage inter communications and inner cooperations .... just if you let the littles put an old sheet or blanket on the floor ... our littles felt more comfortable on the floor the shhet gives them a visable boundry to make the mess in

martha in the system on neveralone ie child specalist .....
