Ecco

Ecco; John David Ellis; tarot.nl; koppenhol uitgeverij

‘Ecco’ is een Italiaans woord en betekent: Hier, kijk eens, asjeblieft! Deze 99 abstracte miniatuurschilderijen zijn van de Amerikaanse schilder John David Ellis. Iedere kaart is een uitdaging voor de verbeelding, een springplank naar de kunst, een magisch tapijt naar de wereld van de fantasie. Iedereen ziet in ieder schilderij weer iets anders: een landschap, een kaart, een jungle, een grot... misschien zelfs een deel van onszelf. Bij het gebruik van de ECCOkaarten is er helemaal geen sprake van dat we rekening moeten houden met wat hoort. Het enige waar we rekening mee moeten houden is de voorstelling die ons aanmoedigt op onderzoek uit te gaan, zonder dat we gehinderd worden door de grenzen die ons door onze omgeving worden opgelegd.

ECCO Helps Children Through Trauma
As an educational counsellor and bibliotherapist, I work with children in the elementary school as well as in a teachers’ training college, preparing the students for their therapeutic and educational work with children.

Last year, we Israelis lived through one of the most traumatic periods of our existence. There were many terrorist acts in the country, suicidal bombings that cost the lives of innocent citizens…. Children were also involved: many were badly wounded or maimed, some lost their lives. Others lost their parents, leaving them orphaned. Moreover, many parents of young children who were not directly affected by the bombings became over-protective toward them, transmitting their fears and anxieties onto them. Many of these children could not concentrate on their studies, were restless, and regressed in behaviour. Scenes of acting out were common during this period. To top this, our prime minister, Mr. Rabin, was assassinated by a fellow Jew. This was the last straw. It was even more traumatic for the children, as he was, on the one had, a father figure, while on the other hand, some of the pupils had heard political utterings against him in ther homes. This led to their feeling rather guilty.

As can be very well imagined, it was almost impossible to treat these children. We tried many and various methods. Many of them were almost catatonic, depressed, and would not cooperate. On the spur of the moment, I took out the ECCO cards. I laid them out on the table, face up, and told the children to choose one that reminded them of recent events. Unbelievably, these cards were the only key to their bottled up fears, frustrations, and traumas. Somehow, these cards seemed to enable them to project their feelings onto the abstract forms. My next step was to ask them to find, in the very same cards, some silver lining, something that gave them hope for the future. Each and every child was able to do so.

This gave me a bright idea: I invited their parents for a session, working in the same way with them. I explained that I wanted them to know what their children had undergone. They were to imagine which card their own child had chosen and what he or she had said. Naturally, they also projected their own feelings onto these cards, and after a deep discussion, they were mentally free to help their children.

It goes without saying that my students at the teachers’ training college learned to do the same with their pupils. The ECCO cards are a wonderful help, at all times, in working with children.
