Mothballs in My Attic: Prompts for Reminiscing
Mothballs in My Attic is a fill-in-the-blank reminiscing workbook. Participants are prompted to complete a sentence about their childhood or early life. For instance:
When participants answer each question with one word, their mind then goes back to their childhood homes and fills in the rest of the story: where they sat at the table, what time they ate dinner every night, what placemats, plates, drinking glasses were used, and so on. The process of a one-word answer brings the experience of the entire scenario. Suddenly, participants are transformed to that time, and instantly, they have experienced a MIMA (Mothballs in My Attic) Moment. The inevitable smile is unavoidable. Take your time; it's a memory extravaganza. It's not to be rushed but rather enjoyed.
