Know Thyself: A Kid's Guide to the Archetypes by Kiersten Marek (Paperback) – Lulu.

Image from Know Thyself, a Kid's Guide to the Archetypes
The Destroyer can take many forms, one of which is destroying other people’s special things out of anger, jealousy, or feelings of worthlessness.

I wrote this book because as I have practiced therapy with children and families over many years, I have found that talking about archetypes and having a visual tool to use when doing so is an excellent way to start meaningful therapy conversations. I also saw that the archetypes model was less stigmatizing than talking in diagnostic terms.

I wanted to create a visual tool that could help kids articulate their experience, and that they could make their own and recreate in their own special way. That is why “Know Thyself” is a workbook and can also be used as a coloring book — it is meant to be a co-creation between child and therapist, or child and parent, or child and teacher, or child and other child — a way to feel bonded to others and on the same team as we find our resources, both internal and external.

Please take a look at the book in preview of “Know Thyself” and consider making it your own.

    1. Thank you! It feels good! But there are still more challenges ahead, such as how to market the whole thing effectively. I think my best bet is to get it in the hands of other therapists who try it out and find out how it works.
