Drawing up an alternative to the classic recovery stairway
Helping people up through design
Text and drawing by Frits Ahlefeldt
The recovery stairway is a classic metaphor explaining how people in recovery needs to take step after step up the ladder or stairs, but I wonder – Could we think of a different metaphor that place more work on the system and less on those in recovery… A bit like a sluice for ships?

About Museum of Psychology – Visualizing psychology
We understand reality at least through a combination of metaphors, images, stories and experiences. But also through our dreams, understandings, feelings, music, walk of life, directions, expectations, relations… and even more dimensions.
Much of this have in common that we can somehow sketch up maps and drawings of these places, trails and situations. Here on Museum of Psychology I (Frits Ahlefeldt) am drawing up a slowly growing map of our many landscapes of understanding.
