D-Cards - difficulties, decisions, deliberations

This is a series of 22 process cards. Of these nine are ‘think’ cards for planning and preparing for difficult discussions, and 13 are ‘activity’ cards which present methods that can be done in a group. The cards explain what the process is, it’s purpose, how to engage in this process and what we thought did and did not work when engaging in this process. This is not a ‘how to’ guide, but a tool to help you explore new approaches and develop your own.
