Seeing through the Eyes of Another: Stories for seeing life from different perspectives
Translated by Lesley Gleeson
“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view – until you climb in his skin and walk around in it.”
Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird
In this innovative book, the author provides stories that illustrate 15 events from two different perspectives.
These pairs of stories are designed to show how an event that initially seems clear-cut becomes more complicated when viewed from someone else’s point of view. In a simple and clear way the author shows how all stories have more than one side and the importance of not jumping to conclusions or being too quick to judge.
Every pair of stories is accompanied by a set of questions for discussion, both after reading the apparently straightforward first story and then after the second once the whole picture becomes clear.
Ideal for use in PHSE and ethics discussions, and also by SLTs and other therapists working with those with ASD or brain injury, this photocopiable resource also includes guidance notes for the professional.
